Thyroid Awareness Month

Thyroid Awareness Month

January is Thyroid Awareness Month! The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped endocrine gland that is normally located in the lower front of the neck. The thyroid’s job is to make thyroid hormones, which are secreted into the blood and then carried to every tissue in the body. Thyroid hormones help the body use energy, stay warm and keep the brain, heart, muscles, and other organs working as they should.For information, education, publications, guidelines, research, and supporting thyroid research and education visit thyroid.org🦋
