TSH, Free T3 and Free T4
It is important to get at least a TSH, Free T3, and Free T4 when evaluating for hypothyroidism. Additional studies are sometimes necessary to fully evaluate thyroid disorders.
Much of the thyroid hormone secreted by the thyroid gland is in T4 form. T4, a major hormone needed to control basal metabolic rate, increases enzyme secretions and is connected to cell energy production. T4 is converted to T3, the active hormone. Often, the conversion of T4 to T3 does not occur optimally due to epigenetic variations in people, iodine insufficiency, medication interactions, and other issues. Thyroid hormone supplementation, an inexpensive simple process, restores T3 and T4 cells to their natural ratio and blood concentrations.
