Hyperthyroidism was first described in 1835, by Robert Graves, an Irish physician. Hypothyroidism is a condition where the thyroid gland, which sits in front of the neck, is over active and produces excessive amounts of a hormone, called Thyroxine.
The hormone controls your metabolism, breathing, heart rate, nervous system, weight and other functions of the body.RELATED: RECOMMENDED PLANS FOR YOU
