Thyroid gland also secretes a protein hormone called thyrocalcitoni’n (TCT) which regulates the blood calcium levels. TCT is secreted by ‘C’ cells of thyroid glands. TCT is a hypocalcaemic hormone which lower the blood calcium level by increasing calcium deposition in the bones, so checks osteoporosis.
