Know Everything About Thyroid

Diseases

What is Thyroid

It is a medical condition that affects the functions of the thyroid glands. The thyroid gland produces thyroid hormones and helps in regulating a person’s metabolism. The thyroid is part of the endocrine system that controls many functions of your body.  It is situated in the front of the neck below Adam’s apple.

Thyroid diseases occur when the thyroid produces fewer hormones or hormones in excess.

There are two main types of thyroid diseases:

  1. Hyperthyroidism- it occurs when the thyroid produces extra or too many hormones.
  2. Hypothyroidism- it occurs when the thyroid produces fewer or too few hormones.

Some other types of thyroid diseases are thyroid nodules, grave’s disease, goiter, and Hashimoto’s disease. If you are a thyroid patient thyroid exercise in yoga will be very beneficial for you.
