Immune Cells Produce TSH

The Pituitary is not the only producer of TSH. Invasive Bacterial species promote T-cell differentiation, which cause lymphocyte production of an immunoreactive Thyrotropin (irTSH). Low serum thyroxine (T4) levels and increased thyrotropin (TSH) polymorphism suggests an impaired Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Thyroid axis (HPT).   Though thyroid atrophy due to chronic under-stimulation could explain the low T3 response to…

“However in disturbed conditions, the production of excessive, deficient or disproportionate secretion of hormones, neurotransmitters and enzymes are of the quality and quantity of cheap, imported knockoffs.” My introduction into this concept occurred when I was a student attending a SORSI conference.
