The Connection Between Your Thyroid and Your Weight
One of the most important parts of our bodies is also one of the smallest ones. The thyroid, butterfly-shaped gland on the front of the neck below the Adam’s apple, releases hormones that have a huge impact on metabolism and weight control, among other processes. Problem with weight – usually gaining extra pounds and having trouble losing them – is among the most common signs of a thyroid not working right. The connection between the two is very complex and it involves other hormones and organs.
