Laboratory Tests & Mental Health
Sometimes checking specific blood levels can be helpful in understanding the psychiatric issues that individuals face. ADHD can be related to low iron stores or neurotransmitter dysfunction. Depression can be related to low vitamin D3 and B12. Anxiety can be caused or worsened by thyroid dysfunction. Under nutrition can contribute to brain fog, ADD like symptoms, depression, and anxiety. Imbalanced hormones can influence anxiety and depression, low energy or poor sleep.
