So, up until Nathan’s diagnosis, I had absolutely no idea what a thyroid did. Now, I’m not quite sure what it doesn’t do. It’s got a finger in everything. Brain development, growth, body temperature, metabolism, digestion. If your body does it, the thyroid and pituitary probably have a hand in it. For example, take a look at these two pictures of Nathan. Same boy. Same onesie. Two weeks apart.
