Category: Thyroid Problems

Your thyroid is a small bowtie or butterfly-shaped gland, located in your neck, wrapped around the windpipe, behind and below the Adam’s Apple area. The thyroid produces several hormones, of which two are key: triiodothyronine and thyroxine. These hormones help oxygen get into cells, and make your thyroid the master gland of metabolism. An estimated 10% of Americans have thyroid disease, and more than half are undiagnosed. Frequently misunderstood, and too often overlooked and misdiagnosed, thyroid disease affects almost every aspect of health, so understanding more about the thyroid, and the symptoms that occur when something goes wrong with this small gland, can help you protect or regain good health.
