Can hypothyroidism be treated online?
Sesame offers convenient and affordable online doctor visits with licensed health providers across the country. If you have a history of hypothyroidism or are noticing the signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism, book a visit right away to discuss diagnosis and testing options.
Online doctor visits can be conducted in the comfort and privacy of your own home. During your visit, you will be asked about your symptoms and health history. A thyroid panel test is required to definitively diagnose hypothyroidism. If your doctor thinks you may be experiencing hypothyroidism, they will talk to you about scheduling follow-up testing for a diagnosis. Sesame will reach out to you about next steps and how to schedule a thyroid lab test.
If your follow-up testing shows that you are experiencing an underactive thyroid, your health care provider will provide a treatment plan. This may include prescription medication and dietary/ lifestyle adjustments. If appropriate, your doctor can prescribe medication through Sesame. Depending on the medication, you can have your prescription delivered to your home or ready for same-day pickup at a pharmacy of your choice. Book a visit today to get started on treatment right away.
