Precisely What You Need
Tired? Gaining weight? Always cold? Hypothyroidism usually starts with common symptoms-fatigue, sensitive to cold, weight gain, constipation, depression, muscles cramps just to name a few. A patient’s thyroid levels are checked, and low thyroid may be the culprit. According to the American Thyroid Association, an estimated 20 million Americans suffer from hypothyroidism, and 60% of those who suffer, don’t even know it.
Commercial medications help many patients. However, every person’s thyroid functions differently, and a one-size-fits-all approach may not help you feel your best. Compounded thyroid replacement offers a tailored approach and may help you overcome some challenges experienced with traditional commercial medications.
Compounded thyroid formulations can be prepared with specific T3 and T4 amounts or compounded with or with dessicated porcine thyroid to overcome your unique challenges. While traditional thyroid prescriptions are immediate release, your compounding pharmacist can create modified-release preparations so the hormone is released throughout the day.
Removal of allergens such as lactose, dyes, gluten, corn, animal proteins etc. can be important for many patients. Compounded thyroid treatments can be created without certain inactive ingredients to meet patient needs.
Our pharmacists are happy to answer your questions about compounded medications.
