Thyroid Hormone Therapy | Woodlands, TX
Treat Thyroid Imbalances and Enjoy a Better Quality of Life!
At Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center, we know that thyroid hormone issues can severely impact your quality of life. That is why we include Thyroid Hormone Therapy among our unique hormone replacement services.
Whether your thyroid hormones are too high or too low, our thyroid hormone therapy is designed to bring your thyroid hormone levels back into proper balance. Thyroid hormones are closely related to metabolism. This is why thyroid imbalances can severely impact your energy levels and ability to enjoy life.
Anyone can suffer from hypothyroidism – where your body is not making enough thyroid hormone, or hyperthyroidism if they are making too much thyroid hormone.
However, hypothyroidism (low levels of thyroid hormone) is the far more common problem requiring treatment with Thyroid Hormone Therapy.
Because every cell of the human body is affected by thyroid hormones, thyroid hormone imbalances can often impact your level or other critical hormones as well such as testosterone and human growth hormone.
Our Thyroid Hormone Therapy is designed to bring all of your hormones back into proper balance for optimal health.
What Are the Benefits of Thyroid Hormone Therapy?
There is not one simple treatment for thyroid imbalances. Thyroid hormone therapy could include iodine supplements, thyroid replacement hormones, along with diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes. The goal of thyroid hormone treatment is to return normal thyroid functioning as much as possible. The benefits of thyroid hormone therapy include:
- Improved energy – One of the most common symptoms of thyroid dysfunction is a feeling of fatigue and a lack of energy. Thyroid hormone therapy can reverse this effect and improve energy and vitality.
- Better tolerance of cold/improved temperature regulation – Another sign of a thyroid issue is a poor tolerance to cold and/or an inability to properly regulate body temperature. Thyroid hormone therapy can prevent the common fluctuations between sweating and feeling cold that are typical of a thyroid imbalance.
- Improved mood – Thyroid hormone therapy helps bring all hormones into balance, resulting in fewer mood swings and less anxiety and depression.
- Improved libido and sexual function – Our patients on thyroid hormone therapy report improved sex drive and more satisfying sexual relations.
- Improved memory and focus – Thyroid hormone therapy can reduce memory loss and “foggy thinking” typical of men and women suffering from a thyroid hormone imbalance.

Common Questions About Thyroid Hormone Therapy
The thyroid gland uses iodine to produce hormones that help regulate the body’s metabolism, including growth and other functions of the body. The thyroid gland is the only human tissue that actively absorbs and processes iodine from the diet, usually seafood or iodized salt.
The definition of hyperthyroidism is an overactive thyroid gland. As a result, the thyroid gland produces more hormones than the body needs. These high levels of thyroid hormone can lead to weight loss, increased heart rate, and heat intolerance.
Hypothyroidism is defined as an underactive thyroid, which results in the gland producing less thyroid hormone than your body needs.
Hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid, is much more common than hyperthyroidism.
If you’re concerned about your risk of developing hypothyroidism, there are two main factors to consider—age and sex. Your chances of being hypothyroid increase with age, and they are greater if you’re a woman. Hypothyroidism occurs primarily in women older than 50.
