Biotin Interference

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Wanted to see how other labs are handling education of Biotin interference to physicians. I am looking at putting a canned comment on all tests that can be affected by high levels of Biotin ingestion - wanted to see if anyone has done this yet and what comment they are using.

So we decided to go with the comment: "Biotin (Vitamin B7) in high doses have been shown to potentially interfere with this test, by causing a clinically significant bias." I think this will give providers a reminder to check the patient's home meds - including supplements when they get a low/high result that doesn't match the patient's clinical picture.
