The thyroid gland surrounds the windpipe at the base of the neck. It produces a number of hormones, pirmarily thyroxine, that accelerate the basal metabolic rate and thus directly influence circulation, respiration, and tissue growth and repair. Thyroxine is also central to sexuality in women, providing a glandular link between the brain the organs of reproduction. The other principal thyroid hormone is calcitonin, which inhibits the release of calcium from bone and plays a central rol.e in maintaining both calcium balance and strong bones. Hyperthyroidism, the name given to overproduction of thyrozine, causes extreme nervousness and irritability, increased heart rate and blood pressure, and weight loss. Underproduction of thyrozine, or hypothyroidism, results in dry skin, brittle nails, and a lack of energy in adults. Goiter, which is actually an enlarged thyroid, is a sign of thyroid insufficiency. In infants, hypothyroidism can be devastating, inhibiting physical development and causing irreversible mental retardation.
