Total triiodothyronine(T3) test helps to evaluate the function of thyroid gland. It is also used to diagnose thyroid disease such as hyperthyroidism. T3(triiodothyronine) is a hormone produced by the thyroid gland. There are 2 major hormones produced by the thyroid gland, and triiodothyronine is one of them. Total triiodothyronine test will measure the free and unbound triiodothyronine in the blood.
If the gland produces an excessive amount of hormone, then it can lead to hyperthyroidism. And if the thyroid gland produces a very lower amount of hormone, then it can lead to hypothyroidism. Hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism are 2 types of thyroids. By measuring total triiodothyronine, we can monitor the effect of thyroid hormone production condition caused by thyroid cancer and thyroiditis.
