in thuis condition thyroid switch from t4 to t3 synthesis,,,,so now we have normal T3,LOW T4 AND HIGH TSH(tsh responsible for developing goiter)

my question ;whe we consider a situation as euthyroid? does it mean thyroid FUNCTION is normal OR we say it based on thyroid HORMONE levels?

FOREXAMPLE IN ENDEMIC GOITER ,t4 is low and t3 normal but we call it EUthyroid,,,,please share your thought

thanks

ok then who knows why we are euthyroid when we are in idodid defeicent area BUT if we are pregnant living in that area our fetus develps hypothyroid???

EUTHROID MEAN NORMAL THYROID HORMONE FUNCITON...IF U READ KAPLAN PHYSIOLOGY IT SAYS THAT T4 IS NOT PHYSIOLOGICALLY ACTIVE ONLY T3 IS AVTIVE HORMONE....MAY BE I AM WRONG..PLZ CORRECT ME IF SO...
