FT4 (Free Thyroxine 4) Test

The FT4 (Free Thyroxine 4) test is essential for checking how well the thyroid gland works. This gland controls metabolism and makes energy. T4, or thyroxine, is a thyroid hormone influencing various bodily functions. Unlike total T4 tests, which gauge all T4, FT4 only measures the unattached T4 in the blood. This matters because only the free T4 is active and ready for cells to use, giving a more accurate picture of thyroid function.
