This butterfly-shaped gland, located at the base of the neck, plays an important role in a number of metabolic processes in the body. It secretes thyroxine – a hormone involved in regulating metabolism, heart rate and growth and development in children. You can easily locate it between the top of your throat (the Adam`s apple region in men) and the top of your breastbone. In fact, the thyroid is in the small space in between.
There are two main kinds of thyroid disorder:
1.Hyperthyroidism occurs when the thyroid is overactive and produces thyroid hormone in excess. The most common symptoms include:
– Difficulty focusing on one task
– Change in bowel habits
– Elevated heart rate and palpitations
– Menstrual problems
– Feeling hot
– Sleeping difficulties
– Racing thoughts
– Nervousness,anxiety or irritability
– Weight loss
2.Hypothyroidism happens when the thyroid gland is not active enough, so not enough thyroid hormone is being made and released into the bloodstream, and the symptoms are:
– Dry skin and hair
– Brittle nails
– Weight gain
– Muscle cramps
– Decreased menstrual flow
– Swelling in the front of the neck
