We offer a new solution to address the predicament of pain sufferers who do not respond to commercially available preparations – gels, creams and rubs suitable for topical application, avoiding the oral route, thus minimizing potential side effects such as stomach irritation and liver damage.

Osteoporosis means “porous bone” whereby the density and quality of bone is reduced and becoming more brittle and prone to fracture. Osteoporosis remains under-diagnosed and undertreated in Malaysia and the prevalence is not well known. Generally, women are more at risk of osteoporosis than men as women experience a phase of accelerated bone loss for approximately 3 years after menopause. Besides maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine, some supplements that can be incorporated into your diet for osteoporosis prevention includes: 1) Vitamin D3 - It plays a pivotal role in nutrition by facilitating the absorption of calcium, thereby helping to support healthy and strong bones. 2) Vitamin K – Activates certain proteins that are involved in the structuring of bone mass. It also helps to moderate a healthy bone turnover process, ensuring that as much bone is built to replace the bone that is broken down. 3) Calcium/ Magnesium – Calcium is important in building bones and keeping them healthy. Magnesium is also an important mineral in the bone matrix, and is usually provided with calcium to offset some of its constipating effects. Prevention is better than cure!

Stroke: The estrogen factor Estrogen is the primary female sex hormone that plays a major role in a woman’s menstrual cycle and is thought to protect the arteries from damage. During menopause, there is a drastic decrease in estrogen and progesterone in the body. Some women could experience an increase in total blood cholesterol, Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL, bad cholesterol) and blood fats levels, increase blood pressure and increase in belly fats before and after menopause. All of these changes are risk factors for stroke and heart disease as well. Good control of conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol as well as optimizing estrogen levels may help to reduce your risk of stroke. Additionally, exercising and eating right will help greatly. Don’t hesitate to speak to your general practitioner or one of our pharmacists regarding the risk factors of stroke.
In Malaysia, more than 7% of children under the age of 5 had been identified as overweight. Childhood obesity puts kids at risk for health problems that were once seen only in adults, like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. The good news is that childhood obesity can be prevented. In conjunction of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, Accent Wellness team encourages your family to make healthy changes together. Here are just a few ideas: 1) Get active outside: Walk around the neighbourhood, go on a bike ride, or jog at the park. 2) Limit screen time: Keep screen time (time spent on the computer, watching TV, or playing video games) to 2 hours or less a day. 3) Taking healthy diet: Take more vegetables, fruits, and whole-grain foods. Taking small steps as a family can help your child stay at a healthy weight!
Did you know - Freckles are small dots on the skin that contain high amounts of melanin. It is produced by specialised cells called melanocytes in response to sunlight, which darkens the skin and creates a protective layer that partially blocks UV rays. Being freckly doesn't mean someone is producing more melanin than others, it just means it is not being deposited evenly. Freckles are harmless, however they may sometimes be confused with more serious skin problems. Uncertain coloured or pigmented spots should be examined by your dermatologist. Topical creams are commercially available, but due to certain individuals who are sensitive to certain ingredients, a compounding pharmacist may be able to compound combination creams without preservatives to help lighten or eliminate bothersome freckles.

Many commonly prescribed pain relief medications help the symptoms associated with chronic conditions such as arthritis, but they can also result in stomach irritation and other unwanted side effects. Compounding can provide alternative methods of delivery by combining the ingredients of traditional oral pain medications in a topical gel, cream or spray form that can be applied directly to the site of pain. For migraine sufferers, pain medications may be administered through nasal sprays or flavoured troches or lozenges and these dosage forms bypass the gastrointestinal tract.

Many adults are affected by acne and some continue to get acne throughout their life. Fluctuating hormone levels, stress and hair and skin care products may cause adult acne. Sometimes, acne is a sign of an underlying medical condition and may require a combination of treatment methods therefore it’s important to consult your doctor or dermatologist before you attempt to purchase over-the-counter options.
DID YOU KNOW - Wounds in animals can be very frustrating to treat. Because animals groom themselves (and others) and are prone to removing any foreign object placed on their skin (like bandages, topical dressings, or locally applied medications). Veterinarians and pet owners frequently struggle to find methods to promote successful wound healing, and often wounds may be so painful that even applying light pressure by placing a bandage or rubbing in an antibiotic cream can cause the animal to cry out in pain or become defensively aggressive. In recent years, veterinarians and compounding pharmacists have teamed up to develop an adhesive bandage system where the medications are mixed with a powder resin to be easily puffed on to a wound to form an antimicrobial occlusive protective bandage. Do you know what this means? Avoiding an unnecessary struggle/fight with your pet for optimal healing! Ask our pharmacists for more information now!
Each August, the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) sponsors Psoriasis Awareness Month, dedicated to raising awareness, educating the public and dispelling myths about the disease. Psoriasis is a common dermatologic problem faced by approximately 3% of Malaysians. Symptoms typically include dry skin, which may be thickened or red with a scaly appearance, swelling, itching, and soreness. Whereas it is generally not a debilitating condition, psoriasis can negatively affect quality of life with its often unpleasant symptoms. Many prescription treatments are available to alleviate symptoms, but when a commercially available medication may not provide the best treatment form, a compounding pharmacy can offer a host of various options to increase compliance for the management of psoriasis.
