Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism is condition that occurs when the thyroid gland is unable to produce a sufficient amount of thyroid hormone. Since thyroid hormone regulates a number of key processes in the body, including metabolism, hypothyroidism can have detrimental effects such as weight gain, fatigue, and dry skin. 

Hypothyroidism is treated by simply replacing the missing thyroid hormone with medications containing either synthetic or natural thyroid hormones. There are numerous manufactured medications available for the treatment of hypothyroidism, many of which are carried by Pharmaneek. Although these manufactured medications work well for many patients, because the doses required are often highly specific, some require a dose that is in between commercially available products. In these cases, Pharmaneek is able to compound custom doses of the thyroid hormones liothyronine and thyroxine to allow patients to get the exact amount they need to treat their symptoms and restore their bodies to a healthy metabolism.
