Evening primrose oil

Hello! Does anyone know if it is ok to take evening primrose oil before having thyroid blood tests? Will it alter the outcome of the results? I am scheduled to get my thyroid blood work done ( to see if my thyroid is messed up) August 13th. I wanted to start taking evening primrose oil now but I am worried that it may change my blood test results :(  Any info is welcomed and appreciated!
Thanks!
Michelle

It wont affect your thyroid levels or results in any way as it is not a hormone for the thyroid.
But dont forget to allow 4 hours after thyroid meds when you take it ...usually best taken at bedtime.

All the best :o)

Evening Primrose Oil is great for ANY Woman regardless of health issues.
It basically helps with hormonal changes and does allieveate anxiety and stress but does take a few weeks to kick in.
