Thyroid hormones are produced by the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland stores these hormones, which are released when needed.
The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland that lies just below your voice box (larynx) and in front of your windpipe (trachea). The gland produces several hormones, but there are only two that are clinically relevant. These are thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3).
