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 hormone helps the body use energy, stay warm and keep the brain, heart, muscles, and other organs working as they should.* During the month of January, find information on thyroid awareness via Facebook and Twitter. *Source: American Thyroid Association
