    Biotin Can Distort Thyroid Lab Testing

    High dose biotin supplements can falsely elevate TSH or other thyroid lab tests. @Koveras discussed this in March, but maybe a separate post can emphasize the concern. Confusing Blood Tests - High FT3 And FT4 And High TSH This is ONLY a caution about interpreting thyroid LAB tests with recent...

    EFAD Symptoms Most Probably Caused By A Biotin Deficiency

    There is old studies reporting animals on a fat free diet could get symptom free when they include liver in their feed , I think that is because it has biotin in much higher level than any other food. Mechanism of blocked lipogenesis induced in rats by feeding extremely hydrogenated fat | AJP...

    Carbonic Anhydrase Is A Key Driver Of Aging; Inhibiting It Is Beneficial

    In support of Ray's views of CO2 as one of the main factors in mitochondrial biogenesis and health, and as such in a host of health conditions, this study found that carbonic anhydrase levels are higher and the enzyme itself is more active in both aging and degenerative conditions. Inhibiting...

    Biotin Restores Glucose Metabolism Even In Type I Diabetes

    The glucose and lipid lowering effects of biotin are well known. A combination of biotin and chromium picolinate is approved as a drug for type II diabetes. The study below goes a step further. It mentions that in humans, 16mg of biotin daily for a week restored glucose metabollism in...

    Biotin Promotes Glycogen Synthesis

    I posted some studies on biotin, including its effects on blood lipids and insulin sensitivity. There have also been discussions on the forum about supplements or drugs that promote glycogen synthesis, since glycogen synthesis and levels are both low in hypothyroid people. In addition to the...

    Biotin As A Treatment For Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

    I posted a study some time ago showing that biotin dramatically increases CO2 production from glucose and as a result increases ATP levels several fold. It was an in vitro study and when I calculated the dosage I freaked out b/c my numbers were showing a human would need at least 200mg biotin to...

    Dosages Of Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacinamide, Pyridoxine, And Biotin

    I was wondering what might be good dosages of thiamine, riboflavin, niacinamide, pyridoxine, and biotin. I currently take the following and was wondering if the doses are OK: (I recently stopped for a few days then restarted as I find I feel better when I take them) thiamine 100mg riboflavin...

    Biotin Reduces Ammonia Levels In Brain And Blood

    Rat study, but should be applicable to humans as well. Human equivalent dosage is about 20mg of biotin per day, which may seem very high to some. However, it has been shown to be safe in humans for up to a year administration and incidentally this is the dose used in humans to lower cholesterol...
