Hi
Thanks for the query
Young people will normally be diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis.

Juvenile means that the arthritis began before the person was 16 years old.
Idiopathic means that the cause of the condition is unknown.
Arthritis means that one or more of the joints are inflamed (swollen, painful, stiff and difficult to move normally).
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) -- a debilitating autoimmune disease, which is one of the common factor of arthritis in young adults

Brief Answer:
gland which secrets harmones - controls metabolism

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for the query
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland that sits low on the front of the neck.
The thyroid secretes several hormones, collectively called thyroid hormones.
The main hormone is thyroxine, also called T4 and T3
Thyroid hormones act throughout the body, influencing metabolism, growth and development, and body temperature.

The thyroid's hormones regulate vital body functions, including:

Breathing
Heart rate
Central and peripheral nervous systems
Body weight
Muscle strength
Menstrual cycles
Body temperature
Cholesterol levels
Much more!
During infancy and childhood, adequate thyroid hormone is crucial for brain development.

Take care
