Hormonal control is essential for our body, it regulates the thyroid gland

The thyroid is an endocrine gland located in the front of the neck. It produces two thyroid hormones: thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). These hormones help to control energy expenditure, the body’s metabolic rate and development from childhood to old age and so affect almost every organ.



Many illnesses and conditions can affect the thyroid gland and cause a variety of problems in other areas of the body.

  • Goitre: Enlarged thyroid gland
  • Hyperthyroidism: When the thyroid gland produces more thyroid hormone than your body needs
  • Hypothyroidism: When the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Nodules: Lumps on the thyroid gland
  • Thyroiditis: Swelling of the thyroid gland



To check the condition of your thyroid metabolism, we recommend getting a blood test to analyse thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) levels.
