Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Hello, I am Rafael. Thanks for asking your question - I'm here to support you. (Information posted here is not private or confidential but public).
I am sorry to know about your situation.
You are right, PTSD can increase the risk factors of different medical conditions including thyroid diseases.
Can I have more detailed research of this answer please
Sorry i cannot provide any specific research on it. i could try to look for it, but wanted to answer your question. Since it is a medical problem, you need to get adequate multidisciplinary support, including psychological and medical, since both interact and affect each other, then there is no way to take good care of your physical health without doing the same with emotions and psychological experience. A medical doctor would be able to answer any medical questions on this regard.
Please could you look for it and get in touch with me another time,
I will do my best and see what I find.
Thank you so much.
I will get back to you with what I find about it. Thank you and bye for now.
Thank you again. I need to know if there is a definitive link in order to prove a material change for the deterioration in my condition PTSD.
I am looking for it. This is what I have found so far.
