Explaining unusual thyroxine (T4), free T4, and thyroxine-binding globulin (TBG) test results that do not correlate with the clinical condition of a patient.


Detecting the presence of aberrant thyroxine-binding proteins such as abnormal forms of albumin and prealbumin.


Detecting selective deficiency of one of the thyroxine-binding proteins.


Detecting antibodies to T4.


As an adjunct to the diagnosis of patients with high T4 concentration due to peripheral hormone resistance by ruling out thyroxine-binding abnormalities.
