San Francisco, CA, December 08, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Koshland Custom Compound Pharmacy announced today that hormonal imbalance has become an all too familiar phenomenon with women and most recently with men. Hormonal imbalance is defined as abnormal hormonal balance both in men and women. In women can be represented by deficiency or excess of estrogen or progesterone, dominance of estrogen, excess of androgens, and deficiency of cortisol. In men can be represented by deficiency of testosterone or excess of estrogen.
In an effort to address these concerns, Koshland Pharm: Custom Compounding Pharmacy has developed a simple, easy to follow checklist for both men and women to determine whether hormones are balanced or imbalanced.
This checklist is a simple guide designed to help you and your healthcare provider determine specific symptoms of hormone imbalance. Each symptom is broken into three categories including: basic hormone imbalance, adrenal hormone imbalance and thyroid hormone imbalance. Refer to Hormone Imbalance Checklist (attached).
Peter Koshland, President and CEO, of Koshland Pharm: Custom Compounding Pharmacy indicates “hormonal imbalance has become more widely known by both men and women, Koshland Pharm: Custom Compounding Pharmacy is
fully equipped and readily available to meet patients’ needs for hormone replacement therapy. Filling this void is just one of the reasons why compounding pharmacies are a vital component of the healthcare system.” Visit their website at www.koshlandpharm.com.

What is Compounding?
Compounding is the process of creating “custom” prescriptions. Some conditions are best treated with medications that are not available in standard commercial formulations. With a compound prescription, you get the most effective treatment, delivered in the most appropriate and convenient dosage form.
