We aimed to determine if there exists a relation between the anxiety and subclinical thyroid dysfunction. This study was carried out in the Meram Medical Faculty of Selçuk University, Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism. Eighty-five outpatients were enrolled into the study. In the presence of normal fT(3) and fT(4…

This study provides good evidence that subclinical thyroid dysfunction is not related to disorders of cognition and mood in older persons, and examines possible associations in a large community-based cohort of persons 65 years of age or older (the Birmingham Elderly Thyroid Study).

Overt hypothyroidism seemed to be associated with worse perception of health status, negatively associated with clinical score, which indicates a great dissatisfaction with health status in this group of women.

The results confirm that thyroid dysfunction is common, may often go undetected, and may be associated with adverse health outcomes that can be avoided by serum TSH measurement.

The results showed higher rates of panic disorder, simple phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder and cyclothymia in thyroid patients than in the general population, suggesting that the co-occurrence of psychiatric and thyroid diseases may be the result of common biochemical abnormalities.
