Thyroid is a small gland located in your anterior neck below the Adam’s apple. It produces two thyroid hormones, T4 and T3.
Between T4 and T3, it is T3 that is the active hormone, Dr. Zaidi explains. It controls our metabolism, weight, and mood. In addition, T3 is important for the health of our heart, muscles, bones, skin, digestion, and reproductive system.
Dr. Zaidi elaborates on T4 which primarily serves as a reservoir for the production of T3. However, T4 to T3 conversion does not take place properly in many individuals such as patients with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
