About the Thyroid

The thyroid is a small, butterfly shaped gland situated at the bottom of your neck, just below the Adam’s apple. Hormones produced by the thyroid gland, which are triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) both have an enormous impact on your health. Thyroid hormones affect every cell and all organs of the body, which is why it is so important to utilize our team of board-certified providers at St. Joseph Hospital Endocrinology in Nashua, New Hampshire. Some of the primary functions of T3 and T4 include:

  • Regulation of the rate at which calories are burned, affecting weight loss or weight gain
  • Can slow down or speed up the heartbeat
  • Can raise or lower the body temperature
  • Influence the rate at which food moves through the digestive tract
  • Control the way muscles contract
  • Control the rate at which dying cells are replaced
