will a collagen/protein supplements affect Thyroid blood test?

I remember that someone told me it would affect TSH, FT4 and FT3. Is that correct?
I take many supplements, collagen/protein for my joints in addition to glucosamine. Vitamins and fish oil too.
Should I just stop taking the supplements for few days before the test or what?
advice me please!!!

I wouldn't stop anything before your tests. Just make sure you are taking the supplements 4 to 6 hours before or after taking your thyroid medicine. I'm assuming you are on thyroid replacement?

No I'm not on thyroid medication yet, I had a wierd TSH and FT4 like 5 years ago and TSH was less than 0.00% but with the nuclear scan and everything he says u r ok for now. I did have my thyroid blood tests 2 years ago and it was fine but I'm always TIRED and LOST !!!

Can't answer your question, sorry, but I would like to know what collagen-protein supplements are available and do they help your joints? What about wrinkles?
