What is the Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)?

The thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), also known as thyrostimulating hormone or thyrotrophic hormone, is released by the pituitary gland and acts on the thyroid gland to regulate its activity. Specifically, this hormone causes the production of the hormones T3 and T4 in the thyroid gland.

Abnormal levels of TSH may indicate that the thyroid's hormone regulation system is disrupted.
