Small but powerful: even though it’s very small, the thyroid plays a significant role in the human body: it produces hormones which regulate the body’s metabolism, oxygen consumption and energy balance. Therefore it is often referred to as the body’s "hormone factory".
An imbalance in the hormone levels can be attributed to a thyroid disorder. This can have a negative effect on the metabolism of the body. Such irregularities can manifest themselves, among other things, through weight changes, nervousness, dry skin, hair loss or depression.
Common thyroid disorders:
- underactive or overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism)
- thyroid nodule
- morbus basedow
- morbus hashimoto
- thyroid cancer
The thyroid gland is located at the front of the neck, directly under the skin, embedded in front of the trachea and below the larynx.
