Thyroid disorders

The butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of the Adam's apple neck is called the thyroid. It is part of the endocrine system, which is responsible for coordinating many body activities. The thyroid glands produce androgen prohormones that regulate the body's metabolism. When the thyroid produces less hormone it leads to hypothyroidism and when excess hormone is produced it leads to hyperthyroidism. Thyroid diseases affect women more than men. In women, infertility problems during pregnancy, miscarriages, menstruation and childbirth.

Graves' disease is an immune disorder that causes excessive production of thyroid hormones called hyperthyroidism. Thyroid hormone metabolism is regulated by carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.
