Thyroid

What is Thyroid?

Thyroid gland is a great regulator of body and mind and thyroid hormones affect nearly every organ in the body. Thyroid is about 2 inches long, a butterfly-shaped gland in the front of the neck, below the Adam's apple. The thyroid secretes several hormones, collectively called thyroid hormones. T4 and T3 hormones tell the body's cells how much energy to use and regulate your metabolism

The quantity of thyroid hormones in the bloodstream is monitored and controlled by the pituitary gland. When the pituitary gland, which is located in the center of the skull below the brain, senses either a lack of thyroid hormones or a high level of thyroid hormones, it will adjust its own hormone (TSH-Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) and send it to the thyroid to tell it what to do.

Common signs of a thyroid disorder:
