Introduction to the Total T3 (Triiodothyronine) Test

A T3 (triiodothyronine) test helps diagnose thyroid conditions in your body, specifically hyperthyroidism. A butterfly-shaped thyroid gland is located in your neck and part of your endocrine system. The thyroid gland mainly releases two hormones, triiodothyronine, also known as T3, and thyroxine, or T4, that play a significant role in carrying out the body’s metabolism and psychological processes. The normal functioning of the thyroid gland is vital to controlling your body weight, muscle strength, body temperature, and mood swings. If your body lacks thyroid hormones in the blood, it may slow body function, or if you have too many, many body functions will speed up. If you notice abnormal symptoms like sudden weight loss, uncomfortable thirst, frequent urination, or fastened heart rate, your doctor may suggest the Total T3 test to avoid potential complications. 

The thyroid’s prevalence percentage in Indian women is 11.4%, and in men is 6.2%. The thyroid gland produces some T3. However, the majority (80%) is made in the part of the body where T4 gets chemically converted to T3. It is the most active hormone in the thyroid gland, containing three iodine atoms. The two types of T3 in blood are bound T3 and free T3. Besides, TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) is produced by the pituitary gland at the base of your brain.

Why do I need the T3 test?

The T3 test is often recommended by doctors when they suspect you have symptoms of thyroid disease. The T3 test diagnoses the condition when your body produces too much thyroid. The test can also help doctors find out about pituitary disorders. Signs and symptoms associated with the need for the Total T3 (Triiodothyronine) Test

  • Weight Loss: When you experience weight loss, your appetite may increase, which is one of the major reasons for the T3 test. Healthcare providers often suggest a total T3 (triiodothyronine) hormone test when a patient complains of other symptoms. 
  • Shaky Hands: This means the thyroid gland is working too hard, kicking your heart rate into high gear. You may also notice that you are losing weight without trying, having trouble sleeping or having a fast heartbeat. 
  • Frequent bowel symptoms: Too little thyroid can cause foggy thinking, and too much can make it even harder to concentrate. An overactive thyroid accelerates bodily systems, including digestion. Individuals complaining about frequent bowel movements may be asked to undergo the T3 test to confirm or rule out thyroid. 
  • Hair Loss: Complaining about diffused hair thinning may warrant a total T3 (triiodothyronine) test. 

Besides, loss of appetite, increased sensitivity to heat or cold, dry or puffy skin, increased heart rate, and weakness prompt the healthcare provider to suggest a Total T3 (Triiodothyronine) test. However, this is not the only scenario in which a doctor may recommend the test. 

Other Reasons When Your Doctor Suggests the Need for a T3 Test: 

  • Birth Control Pills: It is believed that the long-term use of estrogen birth control pills can affect thyroid function in some women. 
  • Steroids: Steroids such as prednisone or other corticosteroids can cause hypothyroidism, or the situation can even get worse. 
  • Medications: Certain medications do interact with thyroid hormone levels. Inform your doctor of all medicines before undergoing the T3 test. 
  • Dietary Factors: Soy products can also affect thyroid function. Discuss your dietary concerns with your doctor before the test. 

No matter the reason, if your healthcare provider has suggested a total T3 triiodothyronine test based on symptoms, risk factors, or other reasons, get yourself tested in time to evaluate your thyroid and take measures accordingly. Sometimes, measuring T3, T4, and TSH tests when assessing thyroid function is useful. Testing the levels will give your doctor a complete picture of what is happening. 

What is the purpose of the total T3 triiodothyronine?

  • Hyperthyroidism: One of the main purposes of the total T3 test is hyperthyroidism, in which the thyroid gland makes too much thyroid hormone. 
  • Pituitary Disorders or Hypopituitarism: This is a rare thyroid disorder in which the pituitary gland does not produce normal amounts of some or all of its hormones. 
  • Primary or secondary hypothyroidism is when your thyroid fails to produce normal amounts of thyroid hormones. 
  • Thyrotoxic periodic paralysis: In this condition, your thyroid produces high levels of thyroid hormones, resulting in weak muscles. 

What preparations are required for the Total T3 Triiodothyronine Test?

No special preparations are required for the T3 blood test. However, before taking the test, one should follow a few guidelines. 

  1. It is vital to tell your doctor about all the medicines you are currently taking for accurate results. 
  2. This test requires no fasting. You can drink or eat normally before the test.
  3. Avoid intense exercise, as it can cause hormonal imbalances. 

If you have any doubts about the test preparations, it is advisable to consult with your doctor to ensure the T3 levels are appropriately measured and the test results are accurate. 

What is the procedure for the Total Triiodothyronine (T3) Test?

The T3 test means measuring the level of T3 in your sample blood, and it includes the following steps: 

  • A phlebotomist may wrap a band around the patient’s arm to ensure their vein is visible. 
  • Once the vein is apparent to the phlebotomist, he will disinfect the area to prevent infection. 
  • Then, the phlebotomist extracted the blood by inserting a sterile needle into the vein. 
  • Once the blood is taken, the used syringe will be removed. He will apply a bandage to the site to minimize infection and prevent excess bleeding. 
  • The collected blood sample will be taken and tested in the laboratory. 

The T3 test does not involve risks or complications. However, inserting and removing the needle can be slightly painful. Do not worry; the pain and bruise will disappear after a few days. If symptoms or discomfort are still visible, immediate medical attention is advisable. 

What does the T3 test result mean?

The T3 test normal range in adults in the blood is 80 to 200 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dl). The normal free T3 level in the blood is 260 to 480 pg/dL. However, the normal value ranges for the T3 test may vary slightly among different laboratories. You are free to ask your healthcare provider about the meaning of your specific test results. 

If it is higher than the T3 test normal range in your report, it means your thyroid gland is producing too much thyroid hormone. This indicates hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid), prompting the need to determine the appropriate treatment in time. 

If your T3 levels are lower than normal, it may indicate you have hypothyroidism (an underactive thyroid).
