Can anyone tell me if I am pooling T3?
Can someone work out my RT3 ratio to see if I am pooling please?
Just that the result I get on STTM calculator is over a million and surely that cannot be correct!
TOTAL T3 1.8 ug/L
RT3 0.11 ng/mL
I think it is broken.
NOTE: this is a BETA calculator. If something didn’t come out right, let my brainy techs and I know. Email Janie via the Contact Me below with your comments.
This is the ratio I get on that calculator
Surely cannot be right!?
My answer, using steam (lots!) and calculator, is that the TT3/RT3 ratio is 16.363. According to Dr Kent Holtorf P174-175 STTPM book, "If you only used a total T3 your ratio to the RT3 would be 10 or higher for healthy low levels of RT3."
Er, 1 nanogram equals 1000micrograms. so express 1.8 ng as mcg., 1.8 x 1000 = 1800mcg.
RT3 is already in micrograms, but is expressed as per millilitre, 1000th of a litre used for the TT3. Therefore, multiply the RT3, which is per millilitre, by 1000 to make it per litre (follow?? I am struggling!)
Anyway, my calculator says to divide TT3's 1800 micrograms by RT3's 110 micrograms.
1800 divided by 110 is 16.363636....higher than Dr Holtorf's "10" .
Is there a mathematician in the house? Am I right?
STTM book - don't know how that P snuck under the wire.
Sorry in a hurry, have you seen both of these?
