maintenance of all organs and functions

It makes the powerful thyroid hormones - substances that, through blood, act on the entire body, the development and maintenance of all organs and functions.
For example, help the body use energy and retain heat; make brain, heart, muscles and other organs working properly.
"The thyroid works in conjunction with the pituitary gland (gland located in the brain), a process of feedback, "Vieira teaches.
Simply put, it works as follows: the pituitary produces the hormone TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone), which is released into the bloodstream, where goes directly to the thyroid, causing it to produce thyroid hormones
These, in turn, act then the pituitary, controlling the amount of TSH secretion, which again stimulates the thyroid to produce its hormones.
And thus continuously
If, for any reason, the thyroid hormones fall or rise slightly in the circulation, the body defends itself
At the time, the pituitary increases or decreases the production of TSH. So whenever you want to know how the thyroid is functioning, you have to "consult" first pituitary, most sensitive to the action of thyroid hormones.
The TSH blood provides information.
"It's as if the driver was the pituitary, the thyroid, the car engine, the thyroid hormones, the speed, and the TSH, the accelerator" compares Vieira.
In hypothyroidism, specifically, the speed is reduced.
