Thyroid function tests (TFTs) must always be evaluated in the context of the patient's clinical status: hypothyroid, euthyroid, or hyperthyroid. TH (thyroxine, T4; triiodothyronine, T3) levels are typically consistent in any given person and reflect the'set-point' of the hypothalamic–pituitary–thyroid (HPT) axis in that person. Thyroid status changes are frequently accompanied by variations in TH and TSH levels (eg raised T4 and T3 with suppressed TSH in thyrotoxicosis; low T4 and T3 with elevated TSH in hypothyroidism). Let's look at how to interpret TFTs and their clinical relevance. Join us live with Dr. Rohit Jacob.
