Sample text

We’ll discuss thyroid hormone resistance more in Chapter 18. Thyroglobulin: The Specific Thyroid Protein The thyroid gland makes a special protein called thyroglobulin. No other body organ has been found to make it. When TSH is released by the pituitary gland to stimulate the thyroid gland, it stimulates each thyroid follicular cell to make thyroglobulin. Some of the thyroglobulin is stored within the interior of the thyroid follicles as colloid (see Chapter 1). Some is combined with iodine within the thyroid cell, releasing fragments that become T4 and T3 in the bloodstream.

This is because, although their thyroid’s ability to suck up iodine has not been altered, the nonradioactive dietary iodine dilutes out the portion of the radioactive iodine that goes into the thyroid gland, resulting in a lower RAIU. The RAIU is useful under certain circumstances. It is most useful when evaluating people with thyrotoxicosis. If the RAIU is high, then hyperthyroidism (usually from a toxic thyroid nodule or Graves’ disease) will be diagnosed as the cause of the excess thyroid hormone.

Thyroid Hormone Resistance Syndrome Certain rare inherited diseases result in people being born with a resistance to their own thyroid hormone. This is caused by a mutation in the gene that makes the receptors for thyroid hormone within the nucleus of each body cell. This is a condition that a person is born with, not something that develops in later years. Because of these abnormal thyroid hormone receptors that don’t stick to T3 as well as they should, far higher than normal levels of thyroid hormone are necessary to do the things that normal levels of thyroid hormone usually do.
