The thyroid is an important gland located in the front part of the neck, which produces hormones that regulate metabolism throughout your body. Thyroid hormone (TH) plays a number of important roles in the body, including regulating the breakdown of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates, regulating heat production, maintaining healthy bones and muscle tone, promoting growth, and maintaining normal lung and heart function.
