About Your Thyroid

The thyroid gland is a small, butterfly-shaped gland located in the base of the neck just below the Adam's apple. Although relatively small, the thyroid gland plays a huge role in our body, influencing the function of many of the body’s most important organs, including the heart, brain, liver, kidneys and skin. Ensuring that the thyroid gland is healthy and functioning properly is vitally important to the body's overall well-being.

Patients with thyroid disorders (knowingly or unknowingly) are Up To Here with frustrating symptoms, such as gaining weight, feeling sad, or not getting enough sleep.

AACE’s Up To Here campaign provides you with resources to keep you informed and proactive about your thyroid health.
