This morning I had to take a urine test for a drug screening. The nurse said everything looked good, but my GLUT level was a little lower than normal. She was filling in for someone and didn't know what that meant. She wasn't worried about it though.
Of course I had to google it. The information I found makes it sound like you should not have any of this substance in your body, and that people take it to mask drug use. So how could I have a level lower than normal?
I don't do drugs of course. I was too embarrassed to tell her but I have been taking a diet herbal pill. The last time I took it was yesterday morning; I usually take it every other day. The listed ingredients are Chinese Hawthorn, Sickle-pod Senna Seed, Oyster Shell, and Sacred Lotus Leaf. I wondered if that might have affected things.
