Does anyone know of published articles, papers, reports, etc., on how much T3 is produced by each of the body's organs?
I am aware that some T3 is generated by the Thyroid and the rest is as the result of conversions in the body's organs.
What i would like to know is how much T3 each organ is responsible for.
The reason for my question is that I have read that T3 is likely to be low in patients who have Chronic Kidney Disease.
I am interested to learn how much the kidneys normally contribute to the T3 pool and the significance of the loss of a kidney and/or a diseased kidney on FT3 blood levels.
