Licensed levothyroxine (T4) and liothyronine (T3) are readily available and come in specific strengths. Occasionally, it is important for a patient to combine these drugs into one medication or receive a non-standard strength. Compounding can offer a solution to these needs.
Roseway Labs supplies a broad range of licensed and imported thyroid medication alongside its compounded offering. Natural desiccated thyroid (NDT) is available as an imported or compounded product.
Comprehensive thyroid testing kits
Roseway Labs provides diagnostic testing kits to assess the health and function of the thyroid gland.
Simple finger-prick blood test kits can check the levels of thyroid hormones, including thyroxine (T4), tri-iodothyronine (T3), and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), which usually increases when the thyroid is underactive. They also test for antithyroid antibodies, which are found in people with Hashimoto’s autoimmune thyroid disease.
Personalised thyroid medication
There are many advantages to using compounded treatments for thyroid medication. When you prescribe compounded formulations, you can:
- Use synthetic hormones or natural desiccated thyroid (porcine gland) to restore healthy thyroid hormone levels
- Combine active ingredients so that the patient only needs to remember one medication
- Alter the relative concentration of levothyroxine (T4) and liothyronine (T3) to optimise treatment
- Change the dosage and concentration to fine-tune thyroid hormone levels
- Specify a suspension or capsules according to patient preference
- Eliminate specific ingredients like dyes, fillers, lactose or corn if your patient has an allergy or sensitivity, which can happen in people with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
Natural thyroid hormones
If your patient’s symptoms haven’t responded to synthetic levothyroxine, Roseway Labs can import and dispense natural desiccated thyroid (NDT) derived from porcine glands. We can also create compounded formulations using natural desiccated thyroid.
