LT4 (FT4) | Free thyroxine


Reference: 15124

Determination of free thyroxine (FT4/LT4) is one of the most important tests for thyroid pathology. This hormone, the unbound and biologically active form of thyroxine, is a useful daily clinical diagnostic tool for the assessment of thyroid status. FT4/LT4 is usually determined together with TSH/TTH. The level of free thyroxine (FT4/LT4) in the blood is usually inversely correlated with the level of TSH/TTH. As one of these parameters increases, the other must decrease, and vice versa. If a decrease in TSH/TTH is detected without an increase in FT4/LT4, in this case it is necessary to determine FT3/LT3. FT4/LT4 measurement, unlike TSH/TTH measurement, directly tests thyroid function.

FT4 is increased in hyperthyroidism, Grave's disease, initial stage of subacute thyroiditis. Decreased in hypothyroidism.
