What is Hypothyroidism?

Hypothyroidism is a condition where the thyroid gland doesn't produce enough thyroid hormones to meet the body's needs. The thyroid hormones produced by your thyroid gland play a role in regulating metabolism, energy levels and the functioning of various organs and systems in the body.

What are the causes?

Several factors can cause hypothyroidism. These factors may include:

Hashimoto’s disease

Hashimoto’s disease is an autoimmune disease that causes the immune system to attack the thyroid gland.

Thyroid surgery

Thyroid surgery or treatment for hyperthyroidism can sometimes lead to hypothyroidism.

Radiation therapy for cancer treatment

Radiation therapy for cancer may increase your risk of hypothyroidism.

Certain medications

Certain medications like lithium can contribute to an underactive thyroid gland.

Hypothyroidism risk factors

Several risk factors can increase your chances of developing hypothyroidism. These risk factors include:

  • Gender — Women are more likely to develop hypothyroidism than men.

  • Family history — Your risk for developing hypothyroidism may be higher if you have a close family member who has been diagnosed with the condition.

  • Autoimmune disorders — Having an autoimmune disorder can increase your risk of developing hypothyroidism since autoimmune disorders can affect the functioning of the thyroid gland.

  • Radiation therapy — As mentioned, if you have undergone radiation therapy for cancer in the neck or head area, you may have a greater risk of developing hypothyroidism.

  • Certain medications — Some medications, such as lithium, can interfere with thyroid function and increase the risk of hypothyroidism.

How do I know if I need a prescription?

If you’re experiencing symptoms of hypothyroidism, make sure to speak with your primary care provider. They will need to run some tests to measure your thyroid hormone levels. If they determine you have a thyroid disorder, they will likely prescribe medication that will help you get your hormone levels under control, if medically appropriate. It’s always important to seek professional medical advice, so you can receive the proper treatment and manage your hypothyroidism under medical supervision.

Related conditions

  • Hashimoto's disease — Hashimoto's disease is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system mistakenly attacks the thyroid gland. This can lead to the underproduction of thyroid hormones, which causes hypothyroidism.

  • Thyroiditis — Thyroiditis is inflammation of the thyroid gland, which can also lead to decreased thyroid hormone production and hypothyroidism.

Circle Medical has been absolutely amazing to me. I have been a patient at Circle Medical for about 7 months now and the experience has just been awesome. From day 1 I have been welcomed with open arms. I do telehealth visits right in the comfort of my own home, how convenient is that, and for me it's perfect because I am a pediatric nurse and I'm always having a busy day / schedule. So that worked out perfect. I was even given the opportunity to pick my own provider and I must say I picked the absolute best provider in the world she Is awesome so sweet and comforting and motivating.

Jovanni

My provider is so genuine and insightful and I truly get value from our sessions! It's extremely easy to set up, navigate and just hassle-free.

Someone always responds and assists me with my questions like how to change pharmacies or reschedule my appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Appointments

What can I expect during my appointment?

During your appointment, your provider will conduct a full evaluation of your symptoms and may perscribe medications or treatments as needed, which will be sent to the pharmacy of your choice the same day. If necessary, the provider may refer you out to a local lab for testing, or to a specialist.

Can my thyroid issues be assessed and treated via a video appointment from home?

Yes. Circle Medical providers are board certified primary care providers who specialize in diagnosing and treating thyroid issues and other medical conditions from the comfort of your own home. To confirm hyper or hypothyroidism, your provider may order bloodwork from one of our 4,000+ lab partners that is conveniently located for you.

How soon will I receive my prescriptions?

Your provider can send your prescriptions to your preferred pharmacy the same day as your visit.

Can Circle Medical providers provide treatment for other medical problems besides thyroid issues?

Yes. At Circle Medical, all of our healthcare providers are board-certified primary care providers who can treat a wide array of health conditions.

General

What if I need in-person testing or examinations?

If any in-person care is needed, such as bloodwork, vaccinations, or other testing, our providers are able to send the appropriate request to a nearby lab. Results will be integrated with our HIPAA-compliant mobile app so that patients have access to all of their medical records in one secure place.

What states do you operate in?

To see our list of currently available states, begin booking an appointment.

You must be currently residing in the state of treatment as well as have your primary pharmacy be in that same state in order to be a patient at our practice.

How long are the appointments?

The first intake appointment is 30 minutes. Follow-up appointments are 20 minutes each.

Billing

How do I know how much my specific appointment will cost?

We provide a cost estimate when you are booking your appointment. For those with insurance, your actual cost is determined after we submit the insurance claim for your appointment. Once we submit the claim, insurance companies will pay for a portion of the appointment and pass on any remaining cost to you. Once we know what this cost is, we will update you with an invoice within the app.

When do I get charged for my appointment?

For those with insurance, it typically takes 1-3 weeks for the insurance claim to be processed. Once processed, we’ll send you an invoice within the app with any remaining costs. You can then opt to pay through the app, or we will automatically charge the payment card on file after 48 hours of sending you the invoice.

For those without insurance (or with out of network insurance), we will send you the invoice 1-2 days after your appointment is completed. You can then opt to pay through the app, or we will automatically charge the payment card on file after 48 hours of sending you the invoice.

Insurance

What insurance do you accept?

We accept over 1,500+ insurance plans. We cover most of the major PPO insurance companies (payors) across the United States. The best way to confirm coverage of your insurance plan is to begin booking an appointment on our website or via our mobile app. During the booking process, you’ll be prompted to enter your insurance information for a real-time verification of your insurance plan.

What if I am having issues verifying my insurance plan coverage?

The best way to confirm your insurance plan coverage is to call the Member Services phone number on the back of your insurance card. If needed, you can reference our Tax ID#: 474883537 and our NPI: 1134596091. Once you are able to confirm your coverage and your primary care copay costs, you can use the in-app chat to message our team with the information. We’ll then follow up with confirmation.

What is the total cost of diagnosis and treatment?

Your per-appointment costs are set by your insurance plan. If the costs seem high, you may be on a high deductible health plan (HDHP). This means that you have an annual out-of-pocket amount that you must pay on healthcare in a given year before your insurance plan will cover more of your per-appointment costs. 

If you are on an HDHP and have confirmed your insurance information in our mobile app, your remaining deductible for the year will be displayed on the “Book Appointment” page. Note that this amount may be outdated if you have had recent insurance claims processed.
