However, its concentration is altered in a number of other disease states such as hypothyroidism, malnutrition, poorly controlled diabetes and chronic disease. INDD 34 Isolated growth hormone deficiency Congenital GH deficiency encompasses a group of different etiological disorders. It may occur in isolation or associated with other anterior and posterior pituitary hormone deficiencies with or without extrapituitary features such as optic nerve hypoplasia and midline forebrain defects. The condition may be sporadic or familial.
Its actions include stimulation of the iodide pump on the cell membrane transporting iodide into the cell, stimulation of the synthesis of the thyroidal storage protein thyroglobulin, and stimulation and synthesis of T4 and T3 and their release from their complexes with thyroglobulin. Isolated thyroid-stimulating hormone deficiency Central hypothyroidism has a reported prevalence of 1 in 50,000 livebirths. Neonates can present with non-specific 1/30/2012 11:21:03 PM CHAPTER 3 The Hypothalamo-Pituitary Axis symptoms such as lethargy, poor feeding with failure to thrive, prolonged hyperbilirubinemia, and cold intolerance.
The α-subunit is identical to the α-subunit of TSH and the specific biological activity of both hormones resides in the β-subunit. The human chorionic gonadotropin β-subunit has similar biological activity to the LH β-subunit. LH secretion is pulsatile in both sexes but sexual dimorphism in physiological secretory patterns becomes evident with maturity of the hypothalamopituitary-gonadal axis. An increased nocturnal LH release is the first sign of the onset of puberty. Pulsatile release of hypothalamic GnRH regulates the secretion of LH and FSH which stimulate the testis and ovary at puberty to increase the gonadal steroid secretion and develop secondary sexual characteristics.
