The thyroid gland is a small butterfly-shaped gland in the neck, just in front of the windpipe (trachea).
One of its main functions is to produce hormones that help regulate the body’s metabolism (the process that turns food into energy).
Many of the body’s functions slow down when the thyroid does not produce enough of these hormones. An underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism) is where your thyroid gland does not produce enough hormones. Common signs of an underactive thyroid are tiredness, weight gain and feeling depressed.
An annual review of your thyroid levels and your general health will help us to make sure you remain well.
Thank you for completing the first stage of your annual review.
Upon receipt of the completed online questionnaire a clinician will determine one of three outcomes – detailed at the end of the survey.
