Dr's Appt on Tuesday - supplement or not?


Going to see new (2nd) Endo on Tuesday. Last blood test said I was low in folate, ferritin, iron, vit D and B-12. My last Endo only said to treat vit D and B-12 -- my GP only said vit D bc it was the only thing actually below the range... anyway, I have been supplementing B-12, vit D and taking mega multi-vitamin for the other things. Now, should I still be supplementing before seeing this new Dr on Tuesday, or no? I have not been diagnosed as hypo yet, but trying to get a Dr to listen and treat based on my laundry list of symptoms! Will taking my supplements change my FT4, FT3 or TSH levels?

Possible if there is biotin in your multivitamin. It interferes with some labs giving false low TSH and false high t3/4. Best to skip it for 2-3 days before blood tests
