The thyroid is an important endocrine organ in the human body and plays a crucial role in controlling numerous endocrine functions. The thyroid gland secretes the thyroid hormones T3 and T4, which play an important role in the growth and development of the human body. Iodine, which is required for proper functioning of the thyroid gland, is provided as supplements or through fortification of table salt. Deficiency of thyroid hormones is called hypothyroidism while excess of thyroid hormones is called hyperthyroidism. Proper functioning of the thyroid gland is of paramount importance to the functioning of human body. Hence, thyroid disorders pose a visible threat to our body’s functions. Sometimes, it is the pituitary gland which controls the thyroid gland through the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) which is at fault causing secondary hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. You can find out if your thyroid gland is functioning well by checking your thyroid profile which includes an assay of your T3, T4 and TSH. Any alteration of the thyroid gland is corrected by thyroid hormone supplementation in case of hypothyroidism and anti-thyroid drugs and radioactive thyroid ablation for a hyper-functional thyroid gland called hyperthyroidism.
