The thyroid produces hormones, which regulate many of the body’s functions. Normal activity of the thyroid is essential in regulating these bodily functions or processes. Over or under production of hormones by the thyroid can cause irregularities in one’s metabolic rate, heart rate, digestive function, muscle control, brain development and bone maintenance.
