Thyroid Gland

Located on either side of the windpipe, the thyroid gland is responsible for the production of hormones that communicate with many of our biological systems, including metabolism, body temperature, energy and fertility.

Under normal circumstances, the thyroid is controlled by the pituitary gland, which works in tandem with the thyroid to deliver the correct amount of hormones when needed by the body.
