Thyroid does control the way our thoughts and intelligence levels are. There are hundred of Dx's out there for people to be labeled at inadequent in mental stability when the thyroid ( or not having one) isreally the problem.

If you google up iodine and Free T3 hormone you will see a direct link to low functioning or  non thyroid individuals and a connection on mental stability with this condition.

If my medication is out of wack then my depression and aniextyy is out of wack as well
