Reverse T3 Test
Experiencing symptoms of fatigue, mood swings,
weight changes, hair loss, and temperature sensitivity, indicative of thyroid
dysfunction or illness. The reverse T3 (triiodothyronine) test is a diagnostic
tool assessing levels of inactive thyroid hormone, reverse T3, in the blood.
Its application lies in evaluating thyroid function, especially in cases with
unusual reverse T3 to active T3 ratios, potentially signifying conditions like
euthyroid sick syndrome, frequently associated with severe illness or stress.
This test, when interpreted alongside other thyroid function assessments, aids
in comprehensively evaluating thyroid health and informing treatment decisions.
