”....hormone tests and tests for markers of heart attacks (like troponin). An inaccurate lab result can have dangerous consequences. For example, the FDA reports that one person taking high levels of biotin died after a falsely low troponin test result.”
What are the other medical conditions’ lab tests, that it throws off (other than hormone tests and heart attack markers troponin?)
