Also called thyrotropin. A hormone produced by the pituitary gland (at the base of the brain) that promotes the growth of the thyroid gland (in the neck) and stimulates it.
Thyroid stimulating hormone is a pituitary gland hormone that increases thyroid function.
A substance secreted by the pituitary gland that controls the secretion of the thyroid hormone necessary for thyroid growth and function. Abbreviated to TSH.
A hormone released from the pituitary that stimulates hormone production in the thyroid gland
(TSH) A hormone produced by the adenohypophysis (the front, glandular part of the pituitary gland) that switches on the thyroid gland, causing it to make and release thyroxine. See also: thyroid function tests
A hormone produced by the pituitary gland which controls the thyroid gland's production of thyroid hormones (T3 and T4). The test of TSH levels is generally regarded as the most sensitive test to identify thyroid disorders.
TSH is a test used for evaluating the function of the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is responsible for regulating the body's metabolism.
TSH or thyrotropin, secreted by the pituitary gland it stimulates the thyroid gland to produce and secrete thyroid hormones.
A hormone secreted by the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland that stimulates and regulates the activity of the thyroid gland. Also called thyrotropin.
TSH A chemical messenger regulating thyroid activity and produced by the pituitary gland, in excessive amounts when the thyroid gland fails to respond because of underactivity.
A hormone produced by the pituitary gland at the base of the brain in response to signals from the hypothalamus gland in the brain. Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) promotes the growth of the thyroid gland in the neck and stimulates it to produce more thyroid hormones . When there is an excessive amount of thyroid hormones, the pituitary gland stops producing TSH, reducing thyroid hormone production. This mechanism maintains a relatively constant level of thyroid hormones circulating in the blood. See the entire definition of Thyroid stimulating hormone
A hormone secreted from the anterior pituitary, that stimulates the thyroid to produce thyroid hormones T4 and T3. Elevated levels of thyroid hormones suppress TSH production by a classical feedback inhibition mechanism.
a pituitary hormone which stimulates the growth and function of the thyroid gland.
the hormone secreted by the pituitary that stimulates the thyroid gland to produce thyroxine.
hormone that stimulates hormonal secretion of the thyroid gland; thyrotropin
A hormone produced by the pituitary that stimulates the thyroid gland. Its measurement is a very sensitive test of thyroid status. More about this.
A hormone produced by the pituitary gland that increases activity of the thyroid.
a pituitary hormone responsible for stimulation the thyroid function (production of thyroid hormone, thyroxine)
