“Hypothyroidism, or low thyroid function, is a silent epidemic. What’s worse, in most cases, hypothyroidism isn’t rooted in a thyroid problem in the first place. It’s rooted in an immune system gone awry, but most doctors don’t test for the antibodies that show the presence of autoimmunity. Many people with hypothyroidism experience crippling fatigue and brain fog. ”
There is also ongoing research about a connection between anti-psychotic medication and the health of the thyroid. A simple blood test reveals your T4/TSH figures and hopefully the test is made as a baseline before anti-psychotics are prescribed and also regularly throughout treatment (at the same time as any other blood test). Own understanding, when T4 goes down – your TSH goes up.
Looking after your physical and mental health should (in our opinion) go hand in hand. Have also read that inbalences in Thyroid can mimic mental health problems.
