Thyroid Disorders

What is Thyroid?

Your thyroid is a little butterfly-shaped organ found at the base of your neck, exactly beneath your Adam's apple. This organ makes thyroid hormone that heads out in your blood to all parts of your body. The thyroid hormone controls your body's metabolism from various perspectives, including how quickly you burn calories and how quick your heart pumps.
