You may experience depression when the levels of your thyroid hormones are low. This is because your body’s natural functions slow down and lag. Low thyroid function is diagnosed with a physical exam, a comprehensive blood test panel, BBT monitoring, and thyroflex nerve conduction velocity testing. Dr. Hugh Melnick always considers the role an underactive thyroid may play when his fertility patients are experiencing depression.



To accurately diagnose hypothyroidism, Dr. Hugh Melnick evaluates a comprehensive panel of thyroid blood tests, conducts BBT testing, and uses the innovative thyroflex nerve conduction velocity test. Thyroflex testing determines a patient’s thyroid status based upon the measurement of conduction velocity through tendon reflex. Clinical hypothyroid patients have very slow or absent tendon reflexes.



Thyroid hormones control your body’s metabolism rate. If you are experiencing weight gain, fatigue, and feeling down, you may be suffering from hypothyroidism – a medical condition in which your body isn’t producing enough thyroid hormones. Hypothyroidism affects one to two percent of people worldwide and is ten times more likely to afflict women – especially those who are struggling with infertility.
