THYROID HORMONE THERAPY

Symptoms of hypothyroidism (low levels of thyroid hormone) include fatigue, cold and heat intolerance, hypotension, fluid retention, dry skin and/or hair, constipation, headaches, low sexual desire, infertility, irregular menstrual periods, aching muscles and joints, depression, anxiety, slowed metabolism and decreased heart rate, memory impairment, enlarged tongue, deep voice, swollen neck, PMS, weight gain, hypoglycemia, and high cholesterol and triglycerides. Yet, more than half of all people with thyroid disease are unaware of their condition.

Although both T4 (thyroxine, an inactive form that is converted to T3 in other areas of the body) and T3 (triiodothyronine, the active form) are secreted by the normal thyroid gland, many hypothyroid patients are treated only with levothyroxine (synthetic T4). Some hypothyroid patients remain symptomatic, and T3 may also be required for optimal thyroid replacement therapy.

However, the only commercially available form of T3 is synthetic liothyronine sodium in an immediate release formulation which is rapidly absorbed, and may result in higher than normal T3 concentrations throughout the body causing serious side effects, including heart palpitations. Research indicates there is a need for sustained-release T3 preparations in order to avoid adverse effects.

A randomized, double-blind, crossover study found inclusion of T3 in thyroid hormone replacement improved cognitive performance, mood, physical status, and neuropsychological function in hypothyroid patients. Two-thirds of patients preferred T4 plus T3, and tended to be less depressed than after treatment with T4 alone. Patients and their physicians may wish to consider the use of sustained-release T3 in the treatment of hypothyroidism, particularly when the response to levothyroxine (T4) has not been complete.

What Our Customers Say

Brittany S

Fareed and Christina are outstanding. I was blown away by the level of customer service by this dynamic duo. They stayed late just to help me with a hard to get prescription, that I could not find anywhere and could potentially save my babies life! They are fast, go above and beyond, and genuinely care about their customers as though they are family. They are outstanding!

Yolanda K

I am over 50 and sex has been painful. Not anymore thanks to the bio identical hormone creams. Every woman needs to know about this miracle cream. I also want to give a huge thank you to this amazing pharmacy team. Not only are they knowledgable and professional, but they are super compassionate. They have gone over and beyond to help me with my prescriptions.

David H

I am a fan when it comes to supporting family owned business. Fareed and Nafisa has never disappointed me when it comes to medication for my dog louie and I. Today I had my doctor send my prescription to Healthcare, and it took them less than 10minutes to fill!

John B

Recently my primary care doctor wrote a prescription refill...and accidentally wrote down a *significantly* different dosage! The pharmacy, noting this, contacted me to double-check...and after speaking with me even went to the length of reaching out to my physician and made sure the dosage was corrected!
