Thursday Thirteen #51

Thirteen Things About The Thyroid

I was having a hard time coming up with an idea for this week's TT, however since I had an appointment with my specialist today I thought I might do a list on the thyroid.

1. The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland
2. It is found in the front of the neck
3. The thyroid produces specific hormones
4. These hormones control how our bodies operate in terms of utilization of food and energy
5. An underactive thyroid is called hypothyroidism
6. An overactive thyroid is called hyperthyroidism
7. I have an overactive thyroid due to Graves disease
8. Hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism may go undetected for years
9. About 200 million people in the world have some form of thyroid disease
10. Thyroid disorders for the most part are treatable
11. Untreated thyroid disease can produce serious results in other parts of the body
12. It is important to have your thyroid checked at each routine physical
13. Most thyroid disorders are 5-7 times more common in women
