Enzymes are specialised protein molecules found in all living cells. They accelerate and regulate all biochemical reactions that occur in the human body. An enzyme itself does not change during a reaction but acts as a catalyst by changing one compound (known as the “substrate”) into another (known as the “product”). Enzymes also play a…
Alzheimer’s Disease is the most common form of dementia and is characterised by memory loss, difficulties with language, and motor and sensory functions. This is the first of two articles that will be discussing some of the various natural treatments for Alzheimer’s disease (AD). As the disease progresses changes in mood and behaviour increase. It…
Calcium and Magnesium are both classified as “essential minerals” which humans require for good health. Like all minerals, they cannot be made in our body and must therefore be plentiful in our diet in order for us to remain healthy. Calcium is a major constituent of bones and teeth (99%), where it plays two roles. First, as…
Kingsway Compounding accommodates all patient types and their related conditions. Patients conditions are classified by the Australian Government’s Institute of Health and Wellbeing. Conditions are grouped and specifically defined by the Australian Refined Diagnosis Related Groups (AR-DRGs).
Kingsway work closely with a wide range of health practitioners and believe that an integrative approach to health ultimately gives individuals the chance to achieve best possible health outcomes.
The treatment of conditions is the ultimate decision of an individual based on the recommendations of their health practitioner. This could entail making changes based on nutrition and/or taking prescription medicines.
At Kingsway Compounding we source and create compounds to improve nutrition (by compounding high quality vitamins and supplements) and compound prescription medicines either without ingredients that cause or clients adverse effects (such as gluten) or that may no longer be mass produced. Below we look at the major areas where conditions can be present and may require treatment.
What is the Australian Refined Diagnosis Related Groups?
“This is an Australian admitted patient classification system, which provides a clinically meaningful way of relating the number and type of patients treated in a hospital to the resources required by the hospital. Each AR-DRG represents a class of patients with similar clinical conditions requiring similar hospital services. The classification categorises acute admitted patient episodes of care into groups with similar conditions and similar usage of hospital resources, using information in the hospital morbidity record such as the diagnoses, procedures and demographic characteristics of the patient.”
Diseases, disorders and conditions are classified in the following areas:
Eyes Ear, nose,
Ear, nose, mouth and throat
Hepatobiliary system and pancreas
Musculoskeletal system and connective tissue
