Identical Thyroid Replacement Therapy

Low Thyroid level is a common, yet often undiagnosed or inadequately treated issue. Some common symptoms of low thyroid include low energy levels, fatigue, depression, weight gain and infertility. Many commercial medications for thyroid replacement therapy are not adequate for every case of low thyroid, and custom treatment can be the solution you need. MD Custom Rx will create your custom compounded treatment to provide a higher level thyroid support catered to you.

There is a great advantage to custom compounds for effective thyroid replacement therapy. Typically, the body secretes T4/T3 in an 11:1 ratio. Commercial combinations of T4/T3 tend to have only a 4.22:1 ratio. This is where compounding pharmacists can make the difference in the effectiveness of your treatment. Compounding Pharmacists are able to create an 11:1 ratio using a commercial T4 product while keeping the oral bioavailability of other necessities accounted for. T3 has a short half-life. Compounded prescriptions have the capability to take a patient’s daily T3 dose and divide it into 2 slow release capsules dosed every 12 hours to help keep the T3 levels at a constant.
