Can you tell me how the body maintain thyroid hormone levels?

H-P-T axis: Hi. It's an interplay in the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid (H-P-T) axis.

The thyroid hormones feed back to suppress TRF & TSH. ...Read more

How frequently do you see bradycardia with barbiturate toxicity and how would you speed it up back to normal?
