Thyroid Hormone Exerts Its Influence By
Are there particular hormones produced and/or controlled by the posterior pituitary or hypothalamus?
A hormone (from greek ὁρμή, "impetus") is a chemical released by a cell or a gland in one part of the body that sends out messages that affect cells in other parts of the organism. Only a little amount of hormone is required to alter cell metabolism. In essence, it is a chemical messenger that transports a signal from ...Read more

Can a hormone inbalance affect your pitiary and thyroid or is the pituary gland responsable for the hormone inbalance?
Endocrinologists?: I think the answer is both. The pituitary is a gland in your brain that "reads" the level of certain hormones in the body, and then puts out various levels of stimulating hormones depending on circulating levels. For example, if there's not enough thyroid hormone being made by the thyroid, the pituitary puts out more TSH - and vice versa. But pituitary disease can alter the pituitary's response. ...Read more

does caffeine consumption affect the amount of growth hormone released by the pituitary gland?
Controversy surrounds those patients with a suppressed tsh. Isn't it true that when a hypothyroid patient starts taking exogenous th, a negative feedback system reduces the pituitary gland's output of tsh. This decreases the thyroid gland's output of en
Endo feedback: With primary hypothyroidism, TSH is elevated in an effort to push the thyroid gland to make more thyroxine. Treatment with levothyroxine indeed signals the pituitary to reduce TSH output. Secondary is when either/or pituitary +/- hypothalamus is damaged but unable to produce tsh. Then, thyroxine levels drop but the pituitary can't respond. Tsh can't monitor treatment but free T4 levels can. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
