  1. thyrotrophic hormone

    Thyrotrophic hormone, also known as thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), is a peptide hormone produced and released by the pituitary gland. Its primary function is to regulate the production of hormones by the thyroid gland. It stimulates the thyroid gland to produce thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), which control the body’s temperature, metabolism and heart rate. Its levels can be affected by stress, sleep, diet and changes in body weight. Abnormal levels of TSH can lead to conditions such as hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism.
