Regarding total t4 and total t3, not to be confused with their FREE counterparts, is there a way to analyze them for better thyroid treatment? They have to be useful numbers, yeah? Are they relevant in comparison to FREES?
For instance, would someone with a lower total have less med for a higher FREE? I'm just making up numbers but let's say the patients total t4 is 100 and her free is 30. Take another patient whose total is 80 and his free is 30. Would the patient with a smaller total be less symptomatic/ill than the patient with a higher total?
Does that make sense?
THANKS FOR ALL INPUT. Trying to learn how to better assess my labs, symptoms, and treatment.
