Importance of measuring thyroid function
The Thyroid is a small gland located on the front of the neck, secretes the thyroxin hormone, calcitonin hormone and Tri-iodothyronine.
Thyroxin hormone plays a key role in controlling the body's metabolism process and calcitonin helps in the process of regulating the level of calcium in the blood. Body and controls the secretion of the Thyroxin hormone by carful system where the brain gives signals to the pituitary gland in the base of the brain in order to secrete the TSH hormone, which leads to higher release proportion of thyroxin hormone from the thyroid gland until it reaches the desired level.
