Should I stop supplements?

  1. Should I stop supplements?

    I have a first visit with Dr. Mariano next month to look into TRT. He's ordered blood/urine tests and while I asked his assistant to let him know I am taking some supps and would he like me to stop before the tests, I am unable to get an answer on this from her. My question to you guys is, do you think these supplements would impact the accuracy of my tests?:

    L-Arginine (2g per day)
    Acetyl L-Carnitine (2g per day)
    Proprionyl L-Carnitine (2g per day)
    Pycnogenol (100mg per day)
    Vitamin E (400iu per day)
    Zinc (30mg per day)

    I am planning on taking the test on Friday morning and stopping all supps this week prior to the test. Is stopping three days before the test really even worth it?


  2. Well, I never heard from any of you guys on this, but I'm taking my blood/urine tests Friday morning. I stopped all supps Monday. A few days may not accomplish anything, but I can't wait any longer or the tests won't be completed in time for Dr. M to have them for my visit. I guess I'll just have to explain what I'm on and hope he can interpret the numbers in light of that.


  3. When going to a dr do not change your current protocol .
