We compound desiccated thyroid capsules.
what is desiccated thyroid
Desiccated thyroid is a naturally occurring thyroid hormone derived from porcine thyroid glands. Thyroid hormone is used to treat hypothyroidism that results from primary atrophy of the gland, functional thyroid deficiency, or decreased thyroid function secondary to surgery, radiation, or antithyroid agents. The preparation is also used to treat pituitary hypothyroidism, hypothalamic hypothyroidism, and cretinism
are compounded desiccated thyroid capsules different?
Thyroid compounds are usually prepared in the same physiological ratio that is found in Armour, however, physicians can elect to change the amount of T3/T4, as the compounding pharmacists are literally making the medications from scratch.
The benefit of the T4/T3 compounded medications is that they can be made devoid of any fillers that people may not tolerate, and they do not increase autoimmunity. Most T4/T3 compounds are immediate release versions, like Armour, however, compounding pharmacists can also make sustained release versions. Some professionals recommend sustained release formulations so that the hormone is released continuously throughout the day, however, these types of formulations may not be absorbed properly by people with Hashimoto’s and gut issues.
