The thyroid gland is vital to metabolism, growth and maturation. Located at the front part of the neck and shaped like a butterfly, the thyroid helps regulate many body functions by releasing hormones into the bloodstream. If too little thyroid hormone is produced, our body can slow down. This condition is called hypothyroidism.
“Dr. Mandagere is a fantastic endocrinologist. I’ve been seeing her for the past 5 years, as she has been helping me with issues around osteoporosis. I would recommend her to my family and friends.”Lorraine in Louisville, Colo.
