Biotin is also called vitamin H, which stands for “Haar und Haut”, the German words for "hair and skin". Biotin can interfere with some laboratory tests, such as those for thyroid hormones, cardiac troponin, and vitamin D12. This can lead to false results and misdiagnosis. Therefore, it is important to inform your doctor if you are taking biotin supplements before undergoing any blood tests.
