Thyroid and Mental Health

Saw this article from PsychologyToday.com pop up on my Facebook page ---- thought I would share it with you. My first reaction was "only 13 million people undiagnosed, bet it's a lot higher than that!" I went through hell trying to find a doctor who took me seriously and treated my hypothyroidism (I am on Levoxyl and T3 compounded preparation), I get checked regularly and it has made a tremendous difference in my overall health. I shudder to think how many people are on antidepressants when what they really need is hormonal balance and medication for thyroid dysfunction!
