The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland that produces hormones, located in the neck below the
‘Adam's apple’ and in front of the trachea.
The thyroid's main function is storing iodine and using iodine to produce hormones that play an important role in the energy metabolism.
Thyroid disorders can lead to a variety of problems, including disturbances of the energy metabolism and underactive or overactive thyroid (hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism). In areas where there is an iodine deficiency, goitres (struma) or nodules may form.
