Purpose:

Women with abnormal serum thyroid antibody levels or abnormal TSH and/or T4 values are more likely than their normal counterparts to have higher scores on a common postpartum depression screening test.


Study summary:

This small pilot study was an attempt to corroborate a relationship between quantified mood and thyroid measures, using the numerical scores obtained from a common depression screen, the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS), as a continuum. Mood scores were compared with presence of thyroid autoantibodies and plasma concentrations of free T4 and TSH.
