The thyroid  is a small , butterfly shaped gland , smaller in middle with two wings around the throat , located in the front of neck .

Thyroid gland  release and control  thyroid hormones that control metabolism. The thyroid controls metabolism with a few specific hormones — T4 and T3. These two hormones secretes  by the thyroid and they tell the body’s cells how much energy to use. When thyroid  gland works properly, it will maintain the right amount of hormones to keep your metabolism working at the right rate.

All this process controlled by pituitary gland . When there is decrease production of thyroid hormones or a high level of hormones , pituitary gland  will adjust the levels with its own hormone. This hormone is called thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH).
