Can any doc tell me what's the difference between thyroxine, thyrocalcitonin and triiodothyronine?
Yes: Thyroxine also known as T4 is the main product of the thyroid gland. Triiodothyronine or t3 (liothyronine) is also a product of the thyroid but most of it comes from the conversion of T4 in the human tissues by the enzyme deiodinase.
