Thyroid Open Access

   The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland present at lower neck in front. Your thyroid lies just below your Adam's apple, along with the front of the windpipe. The thyroid has two side lobes, connected by a bridge (isthmus) from the middle. When the thyroid has its normal size, one can't feel it. Through the hormones produced by it, the thyroid gland affects almost all of the metabolic processes in the body. Thyroid disorders can lie from a small, harmless goiter (enlarged gland) that needs no treatment to life-threatening cancer. The most common thyroid problems is  abnormal production of thyroid hormones. Too much thyroid hormone takes in a condition known as hyperthyroidism. Insufficient hormone production results to hypothyroidism. Although the effects can be unpleasant or irritable, most thyroid issues can be managed well if properly diagnosed and treated. Your thyroid creates and produces hormones that play a vital role in many different systems throughout your Organ system. When the thyroid makes either too much or too little of these important hormones, it becomes a thyroid disease. There are several different types of thyroid disease, including hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, thyroiditis and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Several different disorders can come when your thyroid produces too much hormone (hyperthyroidism) or not enough (hypothyroidism).
