You only need a minute to find out whether your thyroid gland is functioning normally. In case of any abnormality, contact your doctor immediately.
The thyroid gland is a small butterfly-shaped organ on the front side of the neck that produces hormones which affect metabolism, body temperature, heart rate, and the energy level as well.
Under- or overactive thyroid are both conditions that affect many people, but we often do not attach too much importance to either of them. Disorders of the thyroid gland should be treated; otherwise they can cause more serious problems over time.
You can examine your thyroid gland with a simple method. Take a sip of water in your mouth, tilt your neck back slightly, and then swallow the water. Repeat several times. If you feel an unusual bulge in your neck in one or both sides, you may want to consult a doctor.
