Understanding Hypothyroidism

WASHINGTON, December 26, 2018 — An estimated 20 million people are affected by some form of thyroid disease in the United States today. Unfortunately, 60% of those with a thyroid disease are completely unaware of their status. USA Medical offers assistance by providing discounts on medications prescribed for thyroid conditions through its customized prescription savings programs in all 50 states including: Texas Prescription Assistance Program, Florida Prescription Assistance Program and California Prescription Assistance Program.

For Thyroid Awareness Month, USA Medical shares notable signs and symptoms of one of the most common thyroid conditions—hypothyroidism:

  1. Constant fatigue
      Feeling excessively tired is a major warning sign of hypothyroidism. If hormones released by the thyroid are delayed, then energy levels will be unbalanced, causing the body to release sporadic sleep signals.
  2. Sensitivity to cold
      The thyroid gland has been called our body’s thermostat because it helps to regulate heat. If the body is under-producing the thyroid hormones T3 & T4, it can make you more intolerant to cold temperatures.
  3. Constipation
      Unlike hyperthyroidism, which can cause excessive bowel movements, constipation can be a main indication that you may be dealing with hypothyroidism. Thyroid hormones are responsible for the constant movement of bodily fluid and, if not working properly, constipation can occur.

USA Medical Co-Founder and President Jordan Sessler says, “Living with a thyroid disease can mean maintaining a consistent medication regimen. Medications may not be so affordable, which is a key reasons we provide our free card as an option. Using it may help them stay on course with medication adherence. All brand name and generics are eligible for savings up to 75%.”

The pre-activated card is accepted at more than 60,000 pharmacies across the country—local, regional and national chains such as CVS, Costco, Target, Rite Aid, Walmart and Walgreens. Eligible Rx’s include acarbose, glyburide, miglitol, and other medications prescribed for diabetes, as well as thousands of other popular prescriptions.
