Your thyroid is a small gland in the base of your neck. It releases hormones that control your metabolism – the way your body uses energy.
The thyroid’s hormones regulate vital body functions like:
The thyroid is part of the endocrine system which consists of glands that produce, store and release hormones into the bloodstream so they can reach the body’s cells.
The thyroid glands uses iodine from foods you eat to produce two main hormones:
It’s important that T3 and T4 levels remain balanced and don’t get too high or too low.
There are two glands in the brain that communicate to help maintain balance with T3 and T4 levels:
The hypothalamus produces TSH Releasing Hormone (TRH) that signals the pituitary to tell the thyroid it needs to produce more or less of T3 and T4 by either increasing or decreasing the release of the hormone called Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH).
So basically two things can happen with your T3 and T4 levels:
Every cell in the body depends on thyroid hormones to regulate the speed in which metabolism works.
For example – T3 and T4 regulate your heart rate and how fast your intestines process food.
So, if T3 and T4 are low, your heart rate may be slower than normal, and you may have constipation and weight gain.
If T3 and T4 are high, you may have a rapid heartbeat and possible anxiety or weight loss.
If you show signs for any thyroid symptoms, you should have some blood tests done to check your hormone levels.
