Thyroid Stimulating Hormone is secreted from the anterior pituitary and controls the synthesis and secretion of thyroid hormones from thyroid gland. Serum TSH level is the good indicator of thyroid functions and, is of great importance as a diagnostic tool in many thyroid disorders. Similarly in Unani medicine Mizaj is the indicator of domination or excess of a particular khilt in the body. Mizaj is considered as a diagnostic tool and also provide basis for pharmacotherapy. Unani research scholars remain skeptical about thyroid hormones and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) to be placed under which category of Akhlat, as thyroid gland (Gadood-e-Darqiya) and its hormones are not much described in classical literature of Unani medicine. A well established relation between Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) and Mizaj may provide an insight in the direction of diagnosis and thyroid disorder treatment. In this research young healthy individuals were enrolled and their Mizaj assessment along with serum TSH level was done. Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) is found significantly higher in balghami Mizaj and then in Saudawi Mizaj in comparison to Safrawi and Damwi Mizaj, this reflects that thyroid stimulating hormone may be a khilt-e-balgham and posses a Barid-Ratab Mizaj.
