Top 6 Symptoms Your Thyroid is Causing Depression
- Hair loss
- Dry or brittle hair
- Weak or broken nails
- Carbohydrate cravings
- Loss of outer 1/4 of eyebrow
- Fat or loose skin under arms
Some people that are experiencing anxiety or depression may actually be experiencing:
- low thyroid
- improper thyroid hormone function (if on thyroid medication)
- subclinical hypothyroidism
Some people with improper thyroid hormone function are taking thyroid medication like Levothyroxine or more natural Armour but their body can’t properly convert the T4 in the medication to T3, which is the most active form of thyroid hormone.
This can be the root of a person’s anxiety and depression. They may have to take antidepressants but it usually doesn’t solve the problem because in this case it’s not a neurotransmitter problem, it’s a hormone problem.
