It has been estimated by the American Thyroid Association that 20 million people have some form of thyroid disease. Most of the time people come to know very late that they have thyroid disease because there are no clinical signs visible externally. Only a blood test is the medium to deduce the presence of this disease in a body. Most of the time, it is detected during or after pregnancy. Hypothyroidism is that condition in which thyroid gland does not produce thyroid hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) in adequate amount.


Thyroid Gland 


An endocrine gland located below the thyroid cartilage in the neck is the Thyroid Gland. What this gland does, is producing thyroid hormones mainly triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). Both iodine and tyrosine synthesize T3 and T4. Calcitonin that plays a vital role in calcium homeostasis is also produced by the thyroid.
