The thyroid is a large endocrine gland located in the front of your neck. It has two halves that wrap around the windpipe. The thyroid functions to control your body’s rate of metabolism, including maintenance of body weight, the rate of energy use and your heart rate. It does this by producing and releasing hormones.
