How To Calculate Your T3 Reverse T3 Ratio- Calculator 5

Calculating your T3 ratio depends on having two very important values, your T3 levels and your Reverse T3 levels.

As a person who has thyroid disease or who suspects thyroid disease, you probably have heard about  some of the more advanced tests now being used to evaluated thyroid function. Tests like reverse T3, Free T3, Total T3 and Sex Hormone Binding Globulin.  But you should also be aware of the calculation (not lab test) of the T3:reverse T3 ratio or the Free T3:reverse T3 ratio. This ratio provides information about your thyroid and should be calculated whenever you have thyroid symptoms but a normal TSH. There are additional reasons for these calculations as you see below.

Why Calculating Your T3/rT3 Ratio is Important

The normal thyroid gland produces T4 and T3, and some rT3.Reverse T3 is not a problem in every patient  suffering with Thyroid disease. Knowing what your T3/rT3 levels are can be a great way of monitoring your Thryoid function. Being able to calculate your T3/rT3 Ratio allows you to determine whether your hypothyroidism and the symptoms that go along with it (Fatigue, Brain fog, weight gain, hair loss, bone health, constipation-IBS, heart rate, body temperature) is caused by an excess amount of reverse T3 hormone.

To Calculate your rT3 ratio You Will Need The Following Thyroid markers

  1. T3 (Total) or
  2. Free T3
  3. Reverse T3 (rT3)

There Is Much More to Stabilizing Thyroid Function- Then Replacing Hormones

If you have been struggling with Thyroid problems then you know how frustrating it when your doctor only believes in (Synthroid) T4 or T3 replacement. Some physicians believe treatment of hypothyroidism is simply a matter of  prescribing the patient Synthroid and telling them to come back in 3 or 6 months. Well…. for an overwhelming majority of men and woman this doesn’t cut it. There are many causes behind poor thyroid function and I have created numerous videos, articles and newsletters to help educate the public about these matters. I encourage you to read these articles on my website.
