Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland in the brain. Its primary role is to regulate the production and release of thyroid hormones from the thyroid gland. TSH acts on the thyroid gland, stimulating it to produce and secrete thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), which are essential for maintaining the body's metabolism, growth, and development.
