Benefits of Thyroid Hormone Therapy in Sugar Land

Dr. Shel Wellness & Aesthetic Center in Sugar Land provides thyroid hormone therapy for men and women experiencing hormone imbalances that hampers their quality of life.

The benefits of thyroid hormone therapy are experienced as a result of restoring our natural sense of well-being.

Increased energy

Taking thyroid hormone therapy relieves fatigue and lack of energy caused by thyroid dysfunction. You can feel rejuvenated to do more activities you enjoy.

Improved mood

With thyroid hormone therapy, you can avoid mood swings, stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, memory loss, and “brain fog,” which are common in people with thyroid imbalances.

Regulated body temperature

The inability to adapt to cold or warm temperatures may also be a symptom of thyroid dysfunction, and thyroid hormone therapy can help regulate body temperature better.

New hair growth and stronger nails

Thyroid dysfunction can also affect your hair and nails, causing their shape or color abnormalities. Thyroid hormone therapy optimizes thyroid levels by optimizing symptoms like skin, hair, and nail problems.

Helps with healthy weight

Thyroid hormone aids in fat loss by improving metabolic rate and balancing hormones that control appetite and fat storage.

How Does Thyroid Hormone Therapy in Sugar Land Work?

Thyroid hormones support various body processes, including metabolism, temperature regulation, digestion, heartbeat, and heart rate. In essence, thyroid hormones keep one mentally and physically healthy.

Hormonal imbalances, adrenal fatigue, inadequate nutrition, and medications can affect thyroid function. Millions ignore their symptoms due to “normal” lab results, such as thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH).

In many cases, these people have what is known as subclinical hypothyroidism. If left untreated, these symptoms can rapidly become more apparent to the patient, resulting in severe physical and psychological problems.

Types of Thyroid Hormone Imbalance



An underactive thyroid, or hypothyroidism, occurs when your thyroid doesn’t release enough thyroid hormone into your bloodstream. It also causes your metabolism to slow down, resulting in weight gain. As well as feeling tired, hypothyroidism can make you unable to tolerate cold temperatures.


An overactive thyroid, also known as hyperthyroidism, occurs when your thyroid gland releases too much thyroid hormone into your bloodstream. The body’s metabolism speeds up when hyperthyroidism occurs. This can result in weight loss, hand tremors, and rapid heartbeats.

Is Thyroid Hormone Therapy for me?

  • Hair loss
  • Brittle nails
  • Dry skin
  • Low energy
  • Weak muscles

Take control of your health today with thyroid hormone therapy! Dr. Shel’s in Sugar Land will help restore optimal health, improve your mood, regulate body temperature, and strengthen your hair and nails.

What to Expect After Thyroid Hormone Therapy in Sugar Land?

You will be given a thorough consultation in our Sugar Land clinic regarding your thyroid concerns and specific needs. We will carefully review your medical history before the procedure to determine if thyroid hormone therapy suits your needs.

Detecting hypothyroidism and subclinical hypothyroidism as early as possible prevents deterioration of physical and psychological well-being. A simple blood test is used for the preliminary and follow-up diagnosis.

To ensure that each patient is getting the correct dosage of thyroid as their needs change, regular blood tests are a typical and necessary part of treatment.

Once we receive the patient’s tests, Dr. Shel formulates a personalized thyroid hormone treatment plan using a combination of natural T3 and T4, supplementation. Additional testing can also be recommended to treat other wellness-related conditions, such as hormonal imbalance, adrenal fatigue, nutritional deficiencies, weight gain, and allergies.

Considering that every patient is unique, it is difficult to say how long it will take them to notice the results of thyroid hormone therapy. In some cases, patients see remarkable results within a week, while others may need additional time and monitoring.

Common Questions About Thyroid Hormone Therapy

Thyroid hormones control how fast your body’s metabolism works, and a butterfly-shaped thyroid gland secretes them in the neck. Since the thyroid gland regulates many aspects of the human body, including heart rate, breathing rate, and muscle strength, it can lead to serious health problems when it doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormone.

Thyroid imbalance may have different manifestations per individual. You should look for changes in your appearance, such as weaker or brittle hair, dry, red, itchy, thinning, or irritated skin, swelling in your joints, a puffy face, or swelling at the base of your neck.

Most thyroid disorders are caused by abnormal thyroid hormone production. Hyperthyroidism occurs when there is too much thyroid hormone in the body. Insufficient thyroid hormone production causes hypothyroidism. Thyroid problems can be uncomfortable and affect one’s quality of life. Sugar Land’s thyroid hormone therapy can effectively treat and manage your thyroid condition.

The purpose of thyroid hormone therapy is to compensate for the thyroid’s inability to secrete hormones properly. Dr. Shel in Sugar Land, TX realizes no cookie-cutter solutions to thyroid hormone issues exist. Each patient’s thyroid hormone therapy plan is personalized to their needs and goals.

Depending on your condition, your doctor may prescribe thyroid hormone therapy. That is why it’s important to have a trusted doctor like Dr. Shel, who will look at different aspects of your health and lifestyle to determine your condition.
