Hormones from the thyroid affect almost all metabolic processes in the body. Basic hormones are thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). Their secretion is regulated by the pituitary hormone, tireotropin (TSH). In so far as to reduce the secretion of T3 and T4 the pituitary secretes more TSH, and thyroid stimulating the secretion of said additional hormones. If the thyroid gland it can not be, appears goiter (enlarged thyroid gland).

The production of hormones also affect age, which affects the regulation of individual organs to hormonal reaction. Reactions to the hormones from the thyroid weaken with age, in addition to the loss of muscle mass, with a total impact on slowing metabolism.
