The thyroid is responsible for conversion of food into energy, for body temperature regulation, and for the regular function of other systems in the body. Hypothyroidism is caused by the underproduction of thyroid hormones, and hyperthyroidism is caused by the overproduction of them. Hashimoto’s disease and Grave’s disease are two examples of this situation.
Hypothyroidism is accompanied by symptoms such as fatigue, depression, slow metabolism, decreased heart rate, infertility, and more. Hyperthyroidism is accompanied by symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia, fast metabolism, rapid or irregular heart rate, and more. Both conditions are accompanied by various symptoms that vary from individual to individual and that may change over time; hence the difficulty in treating thyroid hormone production irregularities with one-size-fits-all medications. For this reason, custom compounded medications are best suited for addressing thyroid irregularities.
Crestview’s pharmacists can help alleviate the symptoms of irregular thyroid hormone production through custom compounded medication. Based on a thorough medical evaluation of the thyroid hormone levels in your body, as well as private consultation with you and your physician, Crestview’s thyroid therapy treatments aim to restore a natural thyroid hormone balance in the body through compounded medications or supplements. As with our other compounding services, the dosage form of your medication is entirely your decision for maximal convenience and comfort.
We recognize that our patients may have a wide range of physical mobilities, as well as limited time and competing priorities. For your convenience, Crestview offers at-home delivery services — via mail, delivery vehicle or other means based on geographic proximity and/or patient preference — to ensure that you get your medication as quickly and easily as possible. For in-store or drive thru pick-up, please see our business hours and locations.
