Storyboard Text

  • Finally I can get a break from all this hard work. Being Mrs. Thyroid stimulating hormone is hard work. 
  • Who are you? I've never seen you around here before.
  • Well I am a superhero that help to stimulate the thyroid gland
  • I am a hormone that goes from your pituitary gland in your head down to your thyroid which is located in your neck. I stimulate the thyroid to produce Thyroxin and triiodothyronine.
  • Uhh... Okay?? Do I really need that?
  • Huh?
  • Well of course you do. You need to know how your body works. 
  • Well yes. If the pituitary gland produces the wrong amount of me then it may be called Hypothyroidism or Hyperthyroidism.
  • What is that?
  • So all you do is make the thyroid release other hormones?
  • Hypothyroidism is when there is too much of me and it has lots of side effects some are fatigue, weight gain, puffy face and constipation to name a few.
  • Well it is the exact opposite of Hypothyroidism actually.
  • Well that isn't good. I hope that doesn't happen to me. What is hyperthyroidism then?
  • Yes. It is when the pituitary gland doesn't produce enough of me. It also has a lot of side effects. Some include hand tremors, weight loss, rapid or irregular heartbeat, and increased bowel movements. 
  • Oh my I don't know which sounds worse. 
  • Oh really? 
  • Well kid it was nice talking to you. Next time we meet you can call me Thyrotropin, Thyrotropic, or TSH. See ya later!
  • See you again Mrs. TSH..... Hopefully!
