Re: Does It Matter....
Just want to clarify, I think dea4 is referring to thyroid hormone replacement medication. (If you take it right before a lab draw, it can falsely elevate your thyroid hormone levels - but take it immediately after the lab draw.)
What I always did was try for consistency with my lab draws. I tried to get my blood drawn between 9:00 am and 10:00 am each time. This way I felt that I was eliminating any variable that could arise from lab draws being done at different times of the day.
