The T3 Uptake Test

By Elaine Moore on 2/6/2014

Lately, there's some confusion about the T3 uptake test, a test considered obsolete. This test doesn't measure thyroid hormone. In this test, T3 is used as a reagent to determine how well your binding (carrier, transport) proteins bind with thyroid hormone. Years ago, this result was used along with the T4 test result to get an idea of about how much free T4 was present. This calculated result is referred to as an FTI or an FT7. Today, free T4 is tested using the direct FT4 test.
