The thyroid is a small, butterfly shaped gland that sits low on the front of the neck, nestled along the front of the windpipe. The “wings” are actually two side lobes that are connected by a bridge called “isthmus.” The thyroid secretes several kinds of hormones collectively known as thyroid hormones. The two main ones are – triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), they are mainly responsible for regulating your body’s metabolic rate and for regulating many of your bodily functions such as breathing, heart rate, body temperature, digestion and how quickly you burn calories.
The amount of hormones your thyroid makes is usually well regulated. This is why it could be a serious issue if your thyroid doesn’t make enough (hypothyroidism) or if it makes too much (hyperthyroidism). Women should pay particular care to thyroid issues, as they are more likely than men to have thyroid problems. In fact, the risk of thyroid issues for women is approximately 8 times higher than for men.
No matter what gender, people should pay particular attention to the symptoms listed below. While most of these are similar to symptoms of other conditions, it should merit a doctor’s visit if the following symptoms occur together.
If you have these symptoms in clusters, visit your doctor and get a simple blood test to check your thyroid hormone levels.
