Thyroxine-binding globulin test

Thyroxine-binding globulin test

Thyroxine-binding globulin test: The thyroxine-binding globulin test measures the blood concentration of TBG, which binds to thyroxine and limits the amount of free, metabolically-active thyroxine in the blood; an increase in TBG leads to increase in thyroxine production without causing the symptoms of hyperthyroidism, since the excess thyroxine is bound by the excess TBG.
