What Is The Thyroid?

The thyroid is the small, butterfly-shaped gland at the base of your neck. It produces hormones that regulate your body's metabolism. When thyroid hormone production changes, it affects virtually every system in the body.

Undiagnosed thyroid disease may put patients at risk for other health conditions like cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis, and infertility.

Share Your Thyroid Story

We believe that stories are powerful and can strengthen understanding, cultivate empathy, and ultimately, create change. When it comes to living with a thyroid condition, there is no universal experience. Each of us has a unique story with different events, experiences, and emotions along the way. We want to hear yours.
