What is a thyroid?

There is all kind of talk about Thyroids.
That is it? Or what kind of condition, or I don’t even know how to ask my question right.



  • The thyroid is a gland. It affects the function of your heart, eyes, digestive system, hair, muscles, skin and your nervous system.

    An alteration of the function of this gland can cause several symptoms.

    There are two types of alterations of the thyroid: overactive and underactive & these 2 have other types.

    A thyroid is a gland in your neck that controlls everything…. your growth and hormones and everything else. You can get a thryroid problem(underactive and hyperactive thyroid) but you can have two kind of treatments for it … radioactive therapy or you can be on medication.
