Unlikely: Please indicate which tests? There are all kinds of different tests from Urinalysis to Blood tests and Imaging studies. So be specific about the name of the test and the abnormal value that you are concerned about.

If you are taking a herbal or other over the counter medication/weight loss product of some sort, who knows what it can do. There are few studies about effectiveness and/or side effects. if you are taking such things, discuss with your doctor.
