January is Thyroid Awareness Month, which aims to bring awareness and education to issues related to the thyroid. The thyroid is a small gland at the front of your neck that controls how your body uses energy. When you have a thyroid gland issue, your body’s systems may not be working properly. If your doctor suspects that a thyroid condition may be at the root of your symptoms or issues, he or she may order a thyroid test to evaluate the health of your thyroid. Below, we will touch on a few thyroid tests you should know about.
