See Thyroid Releasing Hormone.
Chemical substance secreted by the pituitary gland; controls the release of thyroid hormone from the thyroid gland. TSH is needed for normal thyroid growth and function.
anterior pituitary hormone that stimulates the function of the thyroid gland
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE. Thyroid stimulating hormone is a pituitary gland hormone that increases thyroid function.
hyroid timulating ormone. It is secreted by the pituitary as a response to low T4 ( thyroxine) levels in the blood.
A hormone produced by the brain which regulates production and release of thyroid hormones.
Stands for thyroid stimulating hormone, a hormone produced by the pituitary gland at the base of the brain in response to signals from the hypothalamus gland in the brain. 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 TSH
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.
thyroid stimulating hormone. a pituitary hormone which stimulates the growth and function of the thyroid gland.
Abbreviation of thyroid stimulating hormone, a substance secreted by the pituitary gland that controls the secretion of the thyroid hormone necessary for thyroid growth and function.
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone. TSH is a test used for evaluating the function of the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is responsible for regulating the body's metabolism.
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone. the hormone secreted by the pituitary that stimulates the thyroid gland to produce thyroxine.
Thyroid-stimulating hormone. A hormone produced by the pituitary, which sends a message to the thyroid gland to increase or decrease its production of the hormone, thyroxine.
Thyroid stimulating hormone. A hormone released from the pituitary that stimulates hormone production in the thyroid gland
thyrotropin; a pituitary hormone that promotes the growth of the thyroid gland and stimulates hormonal secretion of the thyroid gland
Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone: Hormone secreted by the Pituitary gland which controls thyroid function. Excess TSH indicates that the thyroid gland is not creating enough T4 or that the T4 created is not accessible to the body cells and therefore requires more stimulation from TSH. This is only part of the thyroid picture however and neither T3, T4 nor TSH levels alone can paint a clear picture of thyroid function. See "How is Lupus Diagnosed?" U - Z
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone. A hormone produced by the pituitary that stimulates the thyroid gland. Its measurement is a very sensitive test of thyroid status. More about this.
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone. 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.
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone. A hormone produced by the pituitary gland that increases activity of the thyroid.
Thyroid stimulating hormone, thyrotropin
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone: International unit; UI
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone is released by the pituitary gland to increase thyroid hormone production. TSH results can reveal whether thyroid function is normal, which is necessary for normal ovulation.
thyroid stimulating hormone. a pituitary hormone responsible for stimulation the thyroid function (production of thyroid hormone, thyroxine)
Thyroid-stimulating hormone. A pituitary hormone that stimulates thyroid hormone production.
