Hypothyroidism - What it is

The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland in the middle of the neck. It produces thyroid hormones, which are important for maintaining our body’s metabolism. 

Hypothyroidism means that the thyroid gland is underactive, and is not producing enough thyroid hormone. This may cause a “slowing down” of many bodily functions.
