People with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) suffer from malabsorption of fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K). The inability to absorb these important nutrients could create a deficient diet among many other conditions. CF patients favor taking A, D, E, and K vitamins in water-dispersible or water-soluble grades because their body can’t absorb oil-base products according to a study by authors N. Huyghebaert, J. De Beer, C. Vervaet, JP. Remon. Cystic fibrosis patients need alternate forms of these vitamins for their bodies to absorb them.
Patients with cystic fibrosis can gain support from expert compounding pharmacists to create compounded formulations for their specific conditions. Compounding pharmacists mix raw materials to create new medications designed for complex therapies like cystic fibrosis. Add a preselected flavor, stable formula and alternate administration formulations. Provide patient care services to administer the medication, monitoring and even support with insurance reimbursements. These new formulations are appropriate for children and all adult ages.
