Thyroid

Thyroid Monitoring: The thyroid is a small gland, shaped like a butterfly, which rests in the middle of the lower neck. Its' primary function is to control the body's metabolism (rate at which cells perform duties essential to living). To control metabolism, the thyroid produces hormones, T4 and T3, which tell the body's cells how much energy to use. A properly functioning thyroid will maintain the right amount of hormones needed to keep the body's metabolism functioning at a satisfactory rate.

The quantity of thyroid hormones in the bloodstream is monitored and controlled by the pituitary gland, which is located in the center of the skull below the brain, senses either a lack of thyroid hormones or a high level of thyroid hormones, it will adjust its own hormone (TSH) and send it to the thyroid to tell it what to do. If the thyroid is overactive, it releases too much thyroid hormone into the bloodstream, resulting in hyperthyroidism. Hyperthyroidism causes the body to use up energy more quickly than it should, and chemical activity in the cells speeds up. An under active thyroid produces too little thyroid hormone, resulting in hypothyroidism. When the amount of hormone released into the bloodstream is below normal, the body uses up energy more slowly, and chemical activity in the cells slows down.
