Hey, for all those who have done urine testing with rheinlabs, I was wondering how important the no-vitamins etc. rule was, and also whether your doctor or doctor john had recommended continuing to take your daily dhea or stopping?
On the instructions, it says to stop taking ALL vitamins....especially B vitamins for 24 hours prior. I was planning on starting my testing tomorrow. Also, what about a general multivitamin or vitamin C and d. These are things I take A lot of daily, and i would have thought you should just keep doing what youve been doing (dr. john's general instructions) but not sure now. And the doc is out for the week.

I would keep exactly the standard routine that you are on.
If you have something on weekly routine, such as weekly T shots, clarify how to go about it. If not possible get your 24 hours in middle of that cycle.
Weekly T shots-- get you 24hr urine in day 3 or 4
E3D routine, get it on a day 2.
This is just my best guess, I do not have any real info.

I was instructed to take my DIM. I did not take vitamins per the instructions. Doc should not be out until Wed, if fact I am on hold with Kim as we speak.

I was instructed:
1. No HCG the week of the test.
2. No B vitamins for at least 24 hours
3. No DHEA for at least 24 hours.

Continue using DIM/I3C/TMG. Except as indicated above, continue use of all other presciption medicications.

Also talk to Dr J about what day he wants you to take the lab. I just had my virtual today and we discussed my Rhein results. I know he does not like people talking about individual protocols, etc but I caution to confirm with your doctor the day you will perform the test versus when your injection is.

I do follow his directions to a T.
Also, I am not on any test injects or androgel but only HCG daily. I assume (and from rheinlabs and my last talk with the doc) that I am NOT to stop my HCG....as its my only treatment and is daily. I am also not getting bloodwork at this time only rheinlabs...thus why the protocol might be a bit different.

Here is a teaser....
Instructions for Providing a 24-Hour Urine Specimen for Rhein Consulting Labs:
PLEASE DISREGARD THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH THE URINARY KIT FROM RHEIN. USE OURS INSTEAD.
If you are a patient of Dr J's and can prove it, pm me and I will email. Proof could be an accurate description of Kim, man cave etc

I work from home, so it isn't bad. If you're a cube dweller or a construction worker I guess you would just have to wait until the weekend to do the collection.

I did the weekend thing but based on new information, that was not the best FOR ME based on the date of my shot. If some call vitamins expensive urine, I would hate for them to price mine out. I think the lab director thought I was cycling after reviewing my results. See my other post titled "guess the lab result" for more details. Again, talk to your doctor, not me. Everyone is different and my body does not work the same way as yours, lucky for you.
