What hormone causes goiters?

The hormone that causes goiters is TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone). It is sent from the Hypothalamus to the Thyroid. TSH has a tropic affect on the thyroid which means it causes it to grow.

Where is the thyroid hormone stimulated from?

Thyroid release the hormone thyroxine. This gland is stimulated by Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) which is secreated from anterior pitutary gland situated in hypothalamus of brain.

Explain the control of thyroxine secretion by negative feedback?

A certain stimuli (cold or stress) go to the hypothalamus then goes down to the thyroid-stimulating hormone-releasing hormone to the anterior pituitary. Low-level thyroid hormone in blood stimulates the anterior pituitary which activates the thyroid-stimulating hormone, which stimulates the thyroid to the thyroid hormones. The thyroid hormones stimulate metabolism and produce growth. When the level in the blood increases above normal the thyroid hormones inhibit the anterior pituitary. Some inhibition goes to the hypothalamus.

What are in the endocrine system?

Hypothalamus; Pancreas; Gal Bladder; Liver; Thyroid Gland

What is TRH's role in the endocrine system?

TRH is secreted by the hypothalamus. It causes the pituitary to secrete thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). TSH causes the thyroid gland to secrete thyroid hormones.

What is the major area where the nervous and endocrine systems interact?


What is a condition of a deficient thyroid?

Primary hypothyroidism is caused by a problem with the thyroid gland itself that produces a low amount of thyroid hormone.Secondary hypothyroidism occurs when another problem interferes with the thyroid's ability to produce hormones. For example, the pituitary gland and hypothalamus produce hormones that trigger the release of thyroid hormone.A problem with one of these glands can make your thyroid underactive.Sometimes, an underactive thyroid that results from a problem with the hypothalamus is called tertiary hypothyroidism.

How does the endocrine and nervous system interact?

Through the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland which is found between the eyes, above the nasal cavity. In simple terms...: The hypothalamus detects low levels of a certain hormone in the blood (lets say Thyroid hormone) and so releases hormone signals (called Thyroid Releasing hormone) which travel to the pituitary gland below it telling it that the body needs more of this particular thyroid hormone. The pituitary will then produce its own signalling hormone (thyroid stimulating hormone) which will travel to the organ in question (the thyroid), telling it to produce more of its own hormone (T3 and T4). Once the organ has produced an adequate amount of the desired hormone, levels of it in the blood rise. This level is picked up by the hypothalamus in turn, which sees that there is enough of this hormone in the body, and so stops sending its signals to the pituitary, reducing the production of thyroid hormone until levels fall again. Hope this helps!

Can the hypothalamus be tested by blood work?

The hormones produced by the hypothalamus can be tested. One of the most common ones tested is TSH, thyroid stimulating hormone. Another is prolactin. There are at least seven significant hormones produced by the hypothalamus.

What are the names of glands in the human body?

What hormone control the thyroid gland?

The thyroid works on a negative feedback system called the hypothalmic-pituitary-thyroid axis (HPT axis) . When the body isn't producing enough thyroid hormone, the pituitary gland and hypothalamus sense the deficiency and the hypothalamus secretes thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH). The TRH is sensed by the pituitary which, in response to the TRH and the deficient thyroid hormones, then secretes thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). When the thyroid senses the TSH, it produces greater amounts of thyroid hormones until body levels are normalized and TSH is decreased, which then slows production of thyroid hormones. TSH or thyroid-stimulating hormone for one

How do the thyroid and parathyroids form a feedback loop?

The thyroid and parathyroid form a feedback loop by releasing hormone from the hypothalamus. This in turn stimulates the pituitary to release TSH into the bloodstream.
