Thyroid Disorders

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland that is situated near the base of the Adam's apple neck. It is a component of the endocrine system, which controls a variety of bodily functions. The thyroid glands create androgen prohormones that control the metabolism of the body. Hypothyroidism results from the thyroid producing less hormone, and hyperthyroidism results from the thyroid producing too much hormone. More women than males experience thyroid disorders.
