Thyroid hormones (TH) have the greatest effect of promoting growth on five-month-old babies or younger ones. Without thyroid hormones mainly promote the growth and development of bones, brain and reproductive organs, even the growth hormone (GH) of pipuitary gland can’t work. Besides, pipuitary gland will produce less GH if there is a lack of thyroid hormones. Therefore, cretinism is caused by congenital TH deficiency. Cretinism patients featuring stagnated bone growth and short stature, have abnormal proportion of upper body to lower body with upper body being longer than ordinary people. 

Levothyroxine is used for the treatment of congenital hypothyroidism (cretinism) and the long-term replacement treatment of hypothyroidism caused by various reasons.
