Hi, I have been suffering with depression on and off for some time. I'm on anti-deps, in therapy, seen a herbalist etc. but the problem remains. My herbalist suggested I get my thyroid checked. I did this abroad (easier than persuading GP). It came back with raised antibodies tho TSH, T3 and T4 were still in range. The endo abroad said I had Hashimoto's. I'm not surprised as everyone in my dad's side of the family has it too. She advised I take 12.5mg thyroxine a day. I need to see my GP now to see if I can persuade her. Before I do, I'd love to hear from anyone who has thyroid problems, particular Hashimoto's, and has suffered with depression and whether thyroxine helped. I have read a lot about auto-immune problems and depression. As well as H's I also have raised NK cells, another auto-immune condition. Hoping to hear some news from any of you out there with whom this resonates. Thanks, Halinka
