Sensitivity of feedback control to thyroid reserve and modulation by FT3
What is it about?
The presence or absence of a functioning thyroid gland impacts on hypothalamic pituitary thyroid regulation
Why is it important?
A declining thyroid function sensitises pituitary TSH response to circulating FT4 concentrations. FT3 in particular has an important role in this adjustement.
