Take the Thyroid Quiz
The thyroid is a gland that controls key functions of your body. It is a butterfly-shaped organ located in the front of the neck. The thyroid gland makes thyroid hormones. These hormones help to maintain your body’s metabolism or production of energy. Disease of the thyroid gland can affect nearly every organ in your body and harm your health.
