This is also known as “tube feeding.” Tube feeding or Enteral is a special liquid food mixture containing protein, carbohydrates (sugar), fats, vitamins and minerals. This special mixture is given through a tube into the stomach or small bowel. Many times, tube feeding is used for a short time and can be administered in the comfort of your home.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

Compounding pharmacists are meeting the needs of peri-menopausal and menopausal women and men (Andropause) by use of bio-identical hormones. These hormones are appealing to patients because they help to mend a hormonal imbalance with hormones that are identical to those produced in the human body.

A compounding pharmacist can tailor a hormone regimen, which mimics what a female’s body has been doing for the past 50 years or so. All women are not the same; therefore, a compounding pharmacist can add value by preparing the medication to “fit” the patient with the appropriate dosage strength and form. For male patients, supplementation of the basic hormone testosterone has show to be an effective treatment for most men experiencing Andropause.

The compounding pharmacist, working in triad with the patient and their healthcare provider, can start and maintain bio-identical hormone replacement. Hormones can be placed in a variety of dosage forms including: rapid dissolve tablets, capsules, topical creams, and suppositories. As the patient works with her physician and compounding pharmacist, she can choose the dosage route and strength that is most beneficial and pleasing to her.
