Many individuals suffer from ailments that affect their endocrine system, which regulates a variety of body functions. Thyroid gland dysfunction is a common condition that may be present in people. Supplementation of thyroid hormone is an option to treat symptoms that may arise from this dysfunction.
How can compounds help?
Often times, a very exact dose is needed to help patients. Commercially available products are made up of synthetic thyroid hormones, which may not work in some people. Natural thyroid hormones, T4 and T3, can be compounded in specific doses for patients. Sustained release formulations are also an option to provide consistent hormone levels throughout the day. Talk to your endocrinologist today to learn if compounded thyroid supplementation may be right for you.
