T3 Free Tracer Dialysis
Thyroid hormone: Thyroid hormone exists in 2 states T4 and T3 (liothyronine) ( they differ in how many iodine molecules are bound to the thyroid hormone chemical structure, with T4 having 4 and T3 (liothyronine) having 3 iodine molecules) ordinarily the thyroid hormones float in the blood either chemically attached to a protein ( protein- bound) or not ( free) so free T3 (liothyronine) is the amount of T3 (liothyronine) hormone in the blood not stuck to protein). ...Read more
Simple answer is that it is a medical technology used primarily to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Hemodialysis remove wastes and excess water from the blood by circulating blood outside the body through an external filter, called a dialyzer.

How can I know if my imune system is what causing me a low levels of free T3 (liothyronine) ? And if it has any thing to do with me having misscarriages ?
Complicated: Check thyroid antibodies to see if you have hashimoto's as a cause of low free t3 (liothyronine). There are other causes, including stress. If you have an autoimmune issue (like hashimoto's) it can effect your fertility so it is important to have this all checked out. There are other tests that should be run to get a sense of what might be contributing to the miscarriages- like hormones, clotting factors. Etc. ...Read more
Maybe none: The units and normal ranges for free t-3 vary widely. In addition, the free t-3 is never used by itself to diagnose a thyroid disorder. It is only even minimally helpful when it is in combination with more useful and conventional thyroid tests like the free-4 and tsh. Free t-3 measures free t-3 in the blood, but what's really important is the t-3 level in the cells, which the test can't measure. ...Read more
