Customized Medications for Adrenal/Thyroid
Adrenal/Thyroid Glands Play an Important Role
Your adrenal glands are crucial in the regulation of many different body functions such as your energy level and sleep. Cortisol, estrogen, and testosterone, secreted by the adrenal glands, can all be impacted by improperly functioning adrenal glands.
Prolonged periods of stress may result in your adrenal glands functioning at sub optimal levels. This is referred to by many as “Adrenal Fatigue.” Adrenal fatigue may present itself as:
- Difficulty getting out of bed
- Chronic tiredness, even after you wake up in the morning
- Trouble thinking clearly or finishing your tasks
The thyroid gland is another important gland that regulates many important body functions. Low thyroid hormone can present itself in many ways, with symptoms such as:
- Increased sensitivity to cold
- Thinning Hair
- Impaired Memory
- Weight Gain
Custom Medication Options in Central Virginia
Surgical removal of the offending gland or commercially available medications steroids or synthetic thyroid hormones are sometimes prescribed to help with adrenal or thyroid gland disorders.
However, these options are not always appropriate for all patients. Some patients have sensitivities to inactive ingredients. Other patients may need a very specific combination of ingredients in a very specific strength that is not commercially available.
Personalized medication compounding could be your solution. Our pharmacy offers customized medication options such as blending very specific thyroid combinations into a sustained-release form.
Tailor-made medication combinations may help patients that are unresponsive or those that synthetic hormones medications may not be right for.
