Thyroid And Mental Health

When a therapist diagnosis a patient with depression and one of the anxiety disorders, the potential is strong that the thyroid is the origin of the difficulties.  Additional medical evaluation can prove the patient has autoimmune thyroiditis, also known as AIT.

“Depression And Anxiety More Common In Patients With Thyroid Disease” (Harding, 2018) talked about the symptoms a patient may experience with this cluster of health issues, the conversation a psychiatrist needs to have with patient when thyroid has not been evaluated and depression and anxiety are diagnosed, and the conversation a physician needs to have with patient when thyroid becomes a complication.
