Connecting Hypothyroidism and Depression + How to Treat it

There is a known connection between hypothyroidism and depression. If you are suffering from depression and you have thyroid disease then you need to learn more about this connection.

T3 can be added to your thyroid medication regimen to help reduce the symptoms of depression.

Some conditions such as the DIO2 polymorphism can reduce how much T3 is produced in neurological tissues.

Hashimoto’s can cause depression secondary to antibody levels themselves but also due to thyroid glandular damage.

Learn how to manage these conditions, how to treat depression and more in this video.

Hey guys!

I’m Dr. Westin Childs and I focus on thyroid health, hormone balance, and weight loss. I write about thyroid disorders, weight loss, insulin resistance, estrogen/progesterone balance on my blog. I truly believe that hormone balance is the key to managing your weight, your mood and your quality of life which is why I’m so passionate about it.

I take a personalized/functional medicine approach to management of conditions. I’m not accepting patients but you can learn more and get plenty of information on my blog!
