Tri-iodothyronine (T3) Free Blood Test

  • Item # LC010389

Thyroid function marker

T3 or triiodothyronine is a major thyroid hormone, along with T4. Blood levels of free triiodothyronine assess the amount of T3 available to the tissues, which is considered by some physicians to be the best marker of thyroid function.

This test measures the amount of T3 available to the tissues, or free T3. Many doctors believe that evaluating the levels of free T3 is the best indicator of thyroid function.

Hypothyroidism is a condition where T3 blood levels are low. This causes cellular dysfunction and metabolic breakdown. Symptoms may include weight gain, constipation, dry skin, and hair loss. Low T3 levels may even lead to the development of chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.

Hyperthyroidism is the term for elevated T3 blood levels. Symptoms can include anxiety, insomnia, heart palpitations, and bowel discomfort.

Instructions

Fasting is not required for this test. Take all medications as prescribed.
