Where is the thyroid gland located?
The thyroid is a butterfly shaped organ that is located in the neck beneath the voice box. The thyroid is connected to a vast amount of important nerves and vessels. Many tiny lobules—small vesicles called follicles—are within the thyroid, which stores thyroid hormones.
What are thyroid hormones?
3 thyroid hormones are produced by the thyroid gland: T3 (Triiodothyronine),T4 (Tetraiodothyronine or Thyroxine) and calcitonin. These thyroid hormones affect blood pressure, weight gain, heart rate and body temperature. The hormones help regulate 2 major aspects within the body: metabolism and growth.
