The effects of thyroid hormones on GH secretion and the mechanisms underlying their action are very similar in man and the laboratory animal. We feel that it is possible to organize the available data into a unique pathophysiological model explaining these complex interactions (Table 1). In summary, physiological levels of circulating thyroid hormones are necessary to maintain normal pituitary GH secretion owing to their direct stimulatory actions. When the serum concentrations of thyroid… CONTINUE READING
