The thyroid gland is a small, butterfly-shaped gland at the front of the neck. This gland is responsible for producing the triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) hormones, which greatly impact our health.
TSH (Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone) triggers the gland to control and release the thyroid hormones. When the gland releases too many hormones, individuals experience hyperthyroidism. If the gland releases less hormones, then individuals suffer from hypothyroidism. Both conditions can impact the entire body and are serious.
The thyroid hormone is responsible for the normal functioning of different organs and body parts. Some of the primary functions include:
While individuals of any age and gender can suffer from hypo or hyperthyroidism, certain risk factors make individuals more susceptible to the disease. Women older than 30 with a family history of thyroid disease are at high risk. Women who have delivered a baby or have been pregnant in the last few months can also have issues with thyroid hormones. Individuals who have received radiation on the neck or upper part of the chest are also known to have thyroid issues.
Since the thyroid hormone is responsible for regulating vital functions, it’s essential to keep the disease in check. The doctor or healthcare professional can diagnose the condition by running a thyroid test. It is a blood test that measures the thyroid hormone levels in the body.
