Are hormones produced by thyroid gland tropic hormones?

Are hormones produced by thyroid gland tropic hormones?

Hormones: A tropic hormone is a hormone secreted by one gland and then stimulates another gland; for example, the pituitary makes TSH, which targets the thyroid and causes the thyroid to make T4 and T3 (liothyronine). The thyroid hormones (T4, T3 (liothyronine)) target other organs (heart, CNS, GI, etc), but not really other glands, so are not really tropic hormones. ...Read more

What pituitary hormones cause the adrenal gland to produce mineralocorticoids, glucocorticoids, and androgens and estrogens including pregnenolone?

What pituitary hormones cause the adrenal gland to produce mineralocorticoids, glucocorticoids, and androgens and estrogens including pregnenolone?

Pituitary & steroids: Hi. Pituitary ACTH regulates adrenal cortisol production; it also acutely stimulates aldosterone, but is not the principle regulator. LH principally stimulates gonadal steroid hormone production (both genders make androgens & estrogens, but in opposite dominance). Pregnenolone is early in the steroidogenic pathway in both adrenals and gonads. Good luck! ...Read more

How are the adrenal glands which secrete testosterone hormones blocked?

How are the adrenal glands which secrete testosterone hormones blocked?

With medication.: The adrenal glands produce androgenic hormones that can be blocked with medication. Aminoglutethimide, ketoconazole, abiraterone & tak-700 (orteronel) are examples, blocking the synthesis of steroid compounds in the glands. Other essential hormones that are blocked may need to be replaced. Surgical removal of both glands would also eliminate adrenal androgens, but it is not done for this purpose. ...Read more

Possible pituitary: Having a high cortisol with a high acth level is indicative of acth dependent cushings disease. This is a rare disorder due to a pituitary adenoma making too much acth. You may or may not be able to see an abnormality on ct scan or MRI of the pituitary. You should do Dexamethasone suppression testing to confirm the diagnosis. Sometimes the acth is coming from a source outside of the pituitary. ...Read more
