Testosterone Replacement & Thyroid Tests

Hi All,

My new doc wants me to start on testosterone replacement ASAP since my levels are so low. I have a box of patches I never used so I will use those first to see how my levels improve. Here is what I need to know:

I have a blood draw tomorrow morning for my thyroid. I know I don't need to fast for thyroid tests, but if I start my testosterone tonight will that affect my thyroid levels one way or the other? If not, I will put my patch on before bed as directed. Otherwise, I may wait until tomorrow night...

I don't know how the testosterone could affect the thyroid tests, but again it wouldn't hurt to wait a day before starting on it... better safe than sorry. The fewer things to muddy the waters the better.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Unless of course someone can definitively tell me it WON'T skew the tests. Until then I will just wait until tomorrow night...
