Hello....depression could be psychological or due to hypothyroidism...... blood tests are often ordered to avoid a misdiagnosis. It is important to note that you can have both depression and thyroid conditions both at the same time. So only way is to get thyroid profile test done ...elevated TSH level confirm hypothyroidism ..
