Hi Anon

Subclinical hypothyroid symptoms are not often seen (hence why it's "subclinical") but depression and under-active thyroid are absolutely connected.This has been documented for quite some time.

It could also be the other way around - click here for an interesting article on this: http://www.empowher.com/mental-health/content/be-aware-your-thyroid-func...

Also, read about the thyroid (and depression) here: http://www.empowher.com/condition/hypothyroidism

Has this helped you?
