Thyroid Awareness Month!

January is Thyroid Awareness month!  Over the next month I will be discussing the thyroid. I will try to touch on every aspect of the thyroid, including the anatomy, the hormones involved, lab results and their meaning. Over the last several years the thyroid has made quite a splash in the news.
The thyroid gland is the largest endocrine gland in the body and adult size is reached at about15 years of age. Who would have thought that something so small, weighing approximately 20 grams, could wreak so much havoc on a body?
