The thyroid gland is found in the neck. It produces hormones that are released into the bloodstream to control the body's growth and metabolism. These hormones are called thyroxine and triiodothyronine. They affect processes such as heart rate and body temperature, and help convert food into energy to keep the body going.
|Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH)||
Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) is made in the pituitary gland in your brain and controls the production of thyroxine and triiodothyronine. When the level of thyroxine and triiodothyronine in your blood are normal, your pituitary gland stops releasing TSH. When the level of thyroxine or triiodothyronine drops, the pituitary gland produces more TSH to boost the level.
