Abstract

Triiodothyronine (T3) levels were raised in four patients from 5 weeks to 9 months before the development of overt hyperthyroidism and before raised serum-thyroxine (T4) levels were found. These observations suggest that hyperthyroid patients may pass through a stage of T3 toxicosis before developing the usual form of thyrotoxicosis, and that serum-T3 measurements may be helpful in the early diagnosis of the disease.
