Thyroid And Immune System Medications
Synthetic thyroid hormones, such as liothyronine and levothyroxine don’t always tend to work on patients. Many patients have realized that Natural Thyroid is the only hormone type that works adequately for them. Patients have reported that they don’t feel as well when they take liothyronine or levothyroxine in combination or alone.
Certain strengths and forms of Natural Thyroid are only available through compounding pharmacies. Further, compounding pharmacists can easily blend T3 and T4 pure powders in a specific ratio as required by the prescription.
Fillers and excipients are contained in commercially available tablets that may not be tolerated by all patients. When customized dosages are compounded, they have the ability to omit problem-causing inactive ingredients. They can also substitute non-reactive fillers with better ingredients.
American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP), led by Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, provides safe and proven compounding medications to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and online nationwide.
Adrenal glands are responsible for secreting hormones, such as estrogen, cortisol, and testosterone. These are essential to vitality and health. They also affect the total body function significantly. Adrenal glands, after mid-life, tend to become a major endogenous source in both men and women for sex hormones.
Prolonged or intense emotional and physical stress associated with chronic illness and modern lifestyle choices can result in Adrenal Fatigue. This is an important contributing factor to several health conditions ranging from obesity to allergies.
Anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory adrenal hormones, such as cortisol can help minimize negative and allergic reactions, such as autoimmune disorders and cancer. Utilization of fats and carbohydrates are affected by these hormones. They also play an important role in converting proteins and fats into energy, gastrointestinal function, and cardiovascular health.
Proper adrenal support is required for completing hormonal pathway for optimal health. Adequate sleep, proper nutrition, stress management, regular exercise, replacement of deficient hormones, and slowing down for regaining a proper life perspective are integral to proper adrenal support.
Thyroid Hormone Therapy
Cold and heat intolerance, fatigue, fluid retention, hypotension, dry skin, headaches, constipation, low sexual desire, anxiety, slowed metabolism, irregular menstrual periods, aching muscles, enlarged tongue, weight gain, swollen neck, deep voice, PMS and infertility are symptoms of low levels of thyroid hormone or hypothyroidism.
A normal thyroid gland is responsible for secreting T3 (triiodothyronine, the active form) and T4 (thyroxine). However, patients with hypothyroidism are usually only treated with levothyroxine (synthetic T4). T3 can be necessary in hypothyroid patients as part of an optimal thyroid replacement therapy. Synthetic liothyronine sodium is the only form of T3 that is commercially available. This is known to cause serious side effects.
In a randomized, double-blind, crossover study, T3 was found to enhance mood, physical status, cognitive performance, and neuropsychological function in hypothyroid patients. Sustained release of T3 may be considered by patients and physicians for treating hypothyroidism. This is especially true for conditions where response to levothyroxine (T4) is not adequate.
