The thyroid gland is located at the base of the neck and produces thyroid hormones (T4 and T3), which are responsible for performing a multitude of activities in the human body. T4 is the least active of the thyroid hormones whilst T3 is the hormone that primarily regulates the metabolic rate within the cells. Even a small decline in the output of these hormones, if sustained over a long period of time, can have profound consequences for health and well being. Hypothyroidism is defined as low thyroid function with a decreased production of thyroid hormones. When thyroid function is less than optimal, metabolic processes slow down and can cause numerous symptoms. The rate of thyroid hormone production is regulated by the pituitary gland, which manufactures another hormone called thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). This hormone is responsible for making more thyroid hormones when levels drop too low. Generally, the more severe the hypothyroidism, the higher the level of TSH.
