  1. Hello,
    Welcome to MediMetry
    I understand your concern .Hypothyroidism leads to depression but depression doesn't occur due to hypothyroidism. There are many other causes for depression. Firstly i want to ask you that your depression is self diagnosed or have you actually consulted with a psychiatrist who has diagnosed you with depression .Kindly get back to me with more detail regarding your current symptoms, since when they have started and whether they were triggered by any stress and also with your current tsh reports.Yes, meditation is useful but need medicines also.
    For detailed discussion kindly consult privately.
