For someone with Tyrosinemia Type 1 I understand the struggle you are going through every single day – remembering to take your medicine, your formula, sticking to your diet – and it’s not the most fun thing to do. But it’s also not that hard. It gives you energy, it makes you feel better, it just gives you a healthier life and who wouldn’t want that?
Living a full life with Hereditary Tyrosinemia Type 1 and NITYR
There’s more about Jamie’s message to the Tyrosinemia Type 1 community in this video:
Convenient to use
A few years ago, Jamie was introduced to NITYR by her doctor who explained that NITYR contained the same active ingredient, nitisinone (NTBC), as her current medication, but that NITYR could be a more convenient option for her whilst balancing her busy college routine with her social life and favorite activities like basketball. Jamie decided to trust her doctor, gave NITYR a go and hasn’t looked back since.
What I really like about NITYR is that the pills are extremely small.1 It makes it easy to swallow, and your life a little bit easier.
Jamie also benefits from the once daily dosing option* that comes with NITYR, which allows her to take all her NTBC medication for the day in the morning, freeing up her day to focus on what matters to her.
What I like about NITYR
Support every step of the way
As part of the NITYR Experience, support is available to Jamie every step of the way. She receives timely calls to check in on how she is doing, if she has enough medication on hand or if a shipment needs to be scheduled to her home, saving her the hassle of collecting the medication from the pharmacy. Something Jamie finds very beneficial and means she has one less thing to worry about.
In addition, Jamie has been utilizing the Patient Nutrition Program** to support her in adhering to the diet plan set out by her healthcare team. Jamie works closely with a Registered Dietitian at Cycle and can ask questions about her diet any time she has them.
It’s like having a best friend. It makes my life so much easier.
For anyone thinking about trying the NITYR Experience, Jamie has a clear message:
Give it a go. It could just make your life way simpler, so you won’t regret it.
You have an opportunity to try the NITYR Experience, compare it to your current nitisinone medication and decide if NITYR is right for you – all without any interference at any level to your current NTBC supply.
