Many, many things: Most overweight people think/hope they have an under active thyroid gland, so doc can give them thyroid replacement and they'll lose the weight (i remember one case in 40 years practice). Many people think they have overactive thyroid when pulse is fast, palpitations in chest, sweat a lot, diarrhea frequently, lose weight or hair, ...Most don't, but check. I do thyroid screening tests routinely.

Multiple organs...: The thyroid hormones secreted by the gland affects almost every system, including basal metabolism, skin, heart, brain, bowel. The thyroid gland is controlled by a part of the pituitary/hypothalamus gland in the brain in a feedback mechanism (as with all glands). Increased thyroid hormone can be associated with 'poppy' eyes, racy pulse, moist skin, perspiring, diarrhea. See prior answer.
