Thyroid and Immune System

Compounds for Thyroid and Immune System

Conditions affecting thyroid function are notoriously difficult to treat, as thyroid function is complex and controls many metabolic functions. Similarly, immune system disorders are equally complex, often requiring a high degree of specificity to resolve. Because treatment of these conditions is highly personalized, with many contributing variables, custom-designed compounds developed at American Integrative Pharmacy can have a significantly positive effect on patient outcomes.

The beauty of a compounding pharmacy is that it allows each patient, and his or her physician, to develop treatments that are specific to that patient’s individual needs—without any un-wanted ingredients or fillers. Specifically for conditions of the thyroid and immune systems, which are so widely variable, a one-size-fits all approach simply doesn’t make sense—often missing the mark and leaving patients with untreated symptoms. Many patients with thyroid or immune system conditions are sensitive to known allergens, such as lactose, gluten, and preservatives. These can be easily avoided with compounded pharmaceuticals, ensuring positive outcomes without side effects. Additionally, compounded treatments take into account any other medications each patient is also using, allowing the pharmacist to develop medications that avoid drug interactions or adverse effects.

Feel Like Yourself Again with Compounded Thyroid Treatments

The thyroid gland produces hormones that are central to our metabolic system, and when something goes wrong, the effect can ripple across many aspects of our well-being. Thyroid conditions can affect:

  • Mood
  • Weight gain or loss
  • Insomnia
  • Immune functions
  • Cognitive processes
  • Digestive regularity
  • Cardiovascular health
  • Thyroid disease is very common, and is generally manageable with medications. However, the complexity of the components of thyroid hormones and the effects that they produce on a multitude of bodily systems makes management a very individual process. There is no reliable one-size-fits-all remedy to thyroid disease.

    Many thyroid patients find that, although their bloodwork reflects thyroid function within the normal range, they are still experiencing symptoms. In these cases particularly, a more customized approach to thyroid treatment is recommended. American Integrative Pharmacy specializes in developing customized T3 and T4 compounds, as well as easily assimilated time-released T3 compounds. These custom-designed formulations provide each patient with appropriate dosages to alleviate their symptoms and put them back on the path to feeling “normal”. In addition, compounded pharmaceuticals can avoid using the fillers that can often cause negative reactions in thyroid patients, such as cornstarch, gluten, and lactose.

    Compounded Immune System Boosters to Treat a Range of Conditions

    Immune system disorders can often be difficult to diagnose and treat. There are more than 200 varieties of primary immunodeficiency disorders, each of which presents with unique symptoms, most common of which is frequent, recurring infections. The underlying causes of immune deficiencies are equally variable, with factors such as heredity, lifestyle, nutrition often playing a role in the onset and severity of the condition.  Often, these immunodeficiency disorders go unnoticed by physicians, with an average lag time between onset and diagnosis of over twelve years.

    The challenge for physicians and patients lies in identifying the precise underlying causes of the condition and arriving at a treatment program that addresses the patient’s symptoms and concerns. And because the symptoms of immunodeficiency disorders are so variable, developing a customized treatment plan is essential for ensuring positive patient outcomes. Customized pharmaceutical compounds can be developed to treat:

    • Chronic sinusitis
    • Chronic lung infections
    • Gastrointestinal distress and/or malabsorption
    • Anemia and other blood disorders
    • Certain types of cancer
  • Arthritis and related joint conditions
  • Skin disorders, such as psoriasis
  • Granulomas, and other complications of the lymphatic system 
  • Due to the wide variability in disorders of the immune system, a compounding pharmacy such as American Integrative Pharmacy is essential for developing the unique compounds each patient needs to treat their individual range of conditions.
