Thyroid hormone (triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4)), produced by the thyroid gland, plays an important role in regulation of metabolism, including directly boosts energy metabolism and triggers rapid protein synthesis and regulates mitochondrial gene transcription, etc. Iodine is necessary for the production of T3and T4, deficiency of Iodine can lead to enlarge thyroid grand and goitre.

     Thyroid hormone: Treating elevated thyroid stimulating hormone levels in obese children and adolescents?

In the differentiation to examine the prevalence of abnormal thyroid function tests among obese children and adolescents, and to study the effect of thyroid hormone supplementation on body weight, linear growth and lipid profiles in these children, showed that hyperthyrotropinemia is relatively common in obese children, but autoimmune thyroid disease accounts for a minority of the cases. TSH levels returned to normal in the majority of patients even without thyroid hormone administration. No beneficial effects on body weight, body mass index, linear growth and body lipids were found in treated subjects, suggesting that thyroidsubstitution is not necessary in most cases(65).
