The thyroid gland is one of the largest glands of the endocrine system and is located in the lower neck, just below the voice box. It should be noted that the cells of the thyroid gland are the only cells in the body capable of iodine absorption and the thyroid gland secretes two hormones (T-3, T-4) that are essential for energy metabolism, normal growth and development. Clinical manifestations of thyroid disease can include weight changes, heart rate changes, nervousness, excessive sweating, muscle weakness and fatigue...to name a few. Patients with thyroid disorders require very specific dosages that are not always commercially available; however Pawleys Island Compounding Pharmacy is prepared to assist in individual formulations. Whether changing ratios of T-4 and T-3, eliminating fillers or changing diluents to ensure there are no crossover sensitivities...we can assist your needs! Remember...these changes involve micro-gram calculations and weighing with precision.
Prescription needs specific to patient needs...that's what we do! If you need special care, custom formulations or, find that you are not getting the help you deserve then ask your doctor to call me! I work one-to-one to assist my patients.
