In response to triggers that are some times unknown, the immune system may begin producing antibodies that attack and damage the body’s own tissues instead of fighting infection. This situation can lead to an “autoimmune disease”. Examples include Rheumatoid Arthritis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Our compounding pharmacists can help patients dealing with autoimmune disorders. Talk to us today about customized medications such as topical/transdermal dosage forms to relieve symptoms that have not responded to commercially available drugs, often with fewer side effects.
