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. Illnesses that disrupt the amount of TH being released by the thyroid gland can be classified into two categories: hyperthyroidism, which is the production of too much TH, and hypothyroidism, which is the production of too little TH. Both are serious conditions that require medical treatment and routine monitoring.
