    The thyroid gland, a fairly small butterfly shaped gland at the base of the neck is responsible for regulating many of the body’s metabolic processes. A "low thyroid level" means that at least one of 3 possible hormones involved in normal thyroid function is insufficient. Hypothyroidism is a failr commonplace condition and can be managed quite easily, in most cases.

  • A thyroid is a gland that is often called a regulator, (in layman’s terms)
