When studying intro pscyh I remember a tidbit of information talking about a diurnal cycle for TSH that changed in response to sleep. The important concept was that TSH levels starting rising in the later afternoon (for normal sleep cycles) usually around sundown, and would continue rising until onset of sleep. This is important for blood test administered to people who have pulled an "all-nighter", since they will have an elevated TSH. Sorry not citation I leave that to the die hard wikipedia-er. (that's why i'm not an article editor)
We also need a graph of the TSH flux throughout a day or month (if it does change throughout a menstrual cycle) Also any information on TSH in geriactrics would be useful as well.eximo 08:12, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
TSH is not a chorionic gonadotropin, this must be some kind of copy-paste mistake.
Somebody please correct the "Symbol CGB" line in the template and check all other data of the template accordingly. TSH is not a chorionic gonadotropin, this must be some kind of copy-paste mistake. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Maxxicum (talk • contribs) 19:45, 21 June 2008 (UTC)
- According to OMIM: In humans, a single gene encodes a common alpha chain of 4 glycoprotein hormones: chorionic gonadotropin, follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, and thyroid-stimulating hormone (Fiddes and Goodman, 1981; Boothby et al., 1981). The links were to Human chorionic gonadotropin and they should have been to Chorionic gonadotropin alpha. This has now been corrected. Sorry for the confusion. Cheers.

Historical TSH norms
I think that this article should state what the old normal values for TSH were. When the norms were first introduced and when they were changed.
I think that before 2002 or 2003 normal TSH was 0.5 to 5.5.
I read a message in a mailing list that said that many years ago, the upper limit for TSH was 12. I would like to know if this is true and when it was changed.
Does it say anywhere in the article what an IU of THS is? Without that information it's tough to do some useful calculations. Does anyone know and if so, can you add it?
