How does the thyroid gland control the body’s metabolic rate?
The thyroid gland secretes hormones which controls the body’s metabolic rate in two primary ways: by stimulating tissue response in the body to produce proteins, and by increasing cell oxygenation.
How does the thyroid produce these vital hormones?
Thyroid hormone production requires the element iodine, which is ingested from food and water. The hypothalamus, located in the brain just above the pituitary gland, secretes thyrotropin-releasing hormone, which triggers the pituitary to release thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH).
How many forms of thyroid hormone exist?
There are 2 kinds of thyroid hormones, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). Thyroxine (T4) is produced by the thyroid gland and has a minor impact on speeding up the body’s metabolic rate. Thyroxine is converted by the liver to triiodothyronine (T3), which is a metabolically active form. Most of the time, T4 and T3 remain tightly bound to certain proteins in the blood in an inactive form.
Why is it important for the body to maintain proper levels of thyroid hormone?
The body needs a certain amount of thyroid hormones in order to regulate a normal metabolic rate.
