Know your thyroid

Diagram of the thyroid gland

The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped organ located at the base of the neck. It is made of two halves, called lobes, that lie along the windpipe (trachea) and are joined together by a narrow band of tissues known as the isthmus.

The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped organ located at the base of the neck. It is made of two halves, called lobes, that lie along the windpipe (trachea) and are joined together by a narrow band of tissues known as the isthmus.


The thyroid gland is part of the endocrine system and is a powerhouse for all cell functions. It produces, stores and releases thyroid hormones known as triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) into the bloodstream which influence the following bodily functions:

  • Metabolic rateĀ 
  • Mood and energy levels
  • Cholesterol levels
  • Cuscle control
  • Nervous system
  • Heart rate
  • Body temperature
  • Digestive function
  • Muscle control
  • Brain development
  • Bone maintenance
  • Hair growth

Hypothyroidism (Underactive Thyroid) occurs when the thyroid gland is not producing a sufficient level of thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) and can result in the following symptoms:

  • Weight gain
  • Fatigue or feeling tired all the time
  • Slow pulse or heart rate
  • Hair loss or thinning
  • Poor tolerance of the cold
  • Depression
  • Dry, coarse or thickened skin
  • Constipation
  • Hand tingling or pain (carpal tunnel syndrome)
  • Irregular period or low sex drive
  • Muscle cramps
  • Impaired memory

Hyperthyroidism (Overactive Thyroid) occurs when the thyroid gland produces an excessive level of thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) and can result in the following symptoms:

  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue or feeling tired all the time
  • Increase or rapid heart rate
  • Tremors (usually in the hands)
  • Heat intolerance or excessive sweating
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Excessive sweating or fever
  • Frequent bowel movements or diarrhea
  • Anxiety
  • Irregular period
  • Low sex drive
  • Enlarged thyroid gland (goiter)
  • Eye condition related to hyperthyroidism

Thyroid Dysfunction

Other causes of thyroid dysfunction can include family history, genetic factors, autoimmune disorders, medications and performance-enhancing substances.

Plummer's Disease

Plummer's Disease or goiter occurs when there is a marked growth or swelling of the thyroid gland resulting in the overproduction of thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3).

Goiter

A general term for thyroid swelling. Goiters can be harmless, or can represent iodine deficiency or a condition associated with thyroid inflammation called Hashimoto's thyroiditis.

Thyroiditis

Inflammation of the thyroid, usually from a viral infection or autoimmune condition. Thyroiditis can be painful, or have no symptoms at all.

Hashimoto's Thyroiditis

Hashimoto's Thyroiditis is the leading cause of hypothyroidism. It causes inflammation in the thyroid which hinders the production of T4 and T3.

Medication

Medications and performance-enhancing drugs may affect the ability of the thyroid to produce T4 and T3 naturally.

Family history

Autoimmune diseases tend to run in families, so you are at a higher risk of suffering from hyperthyroidism if a family member does.

Grave's Disease

Graves Disease is the leading cause of hyperthyroidism. It is an autoimmune disorder in which the thyroid produces too much T4 causing antibodies to attack the thyroid.

Thyroid Cancer

An uncommon form of cancer, thyroid cancer is usually curable. Surgery, radiation, and hormone treatments may be used to treat thyroid cancer.

Thyroid Nodule

A small abnormal mass or lump in the thyroid gland. Thyroid nodules are extremely common and few are cancerous. They may secrete excess hormones, causing hyperthyroidism, or cause no problems.

60% of those who suffer from a thyroid disorder are unaware of their condition.
