Although pharmacological doses of glucocorticoids suppress TSH secretion, less is known regarding the effects of physiological variations in cortisol levels on TSH. To study this issue, seven subjects with primary adrenal insufficiency each underwent four studies. In the first study subjects received infusions of saline for 48 h (baseline study). In the second study subjects received infusions of hydrocortisone for 48 h in a pulsatile and diurnal pattern that replicated serum cortisol levels in… CONTINUE READING
