Hypotyreos och depression: En litteraturstudie

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med det här arbetet var att undersöka en eventuell koppling mellan subklinisk hypotyreos och depression. De hypoteser som prövas är: ”Värdet för tyreoideastimulerande hormon (TSH) kan användas som markör för depression” samt ”Värdet för antikroppar mot tyreoperoxidas (TPOAk) kan användas som markör för depression”. Metoden som använts är en litteraturstudie. Vetenskapliga artiklar publicerade 2012 och framåt som möter inklusionkriterierna har använts. Dessa kriterier var att artiklarna skulle vara orginalstudier, vetenskapligt granskade, mäta nivåer av TSH och TPOAk i serum samt undersöka sambandet mellan hypotyreos och depression genom att titta på serumnivåer av TSH och TPOAk. Studierna skulle ej vara utförda på djur. Resultatet visar att fyra av sju artiklar påvisar ett positivt samband mellan hypotyreos och depression. Det visar även att tre artiklar kunde påvisa ett positivt samband mellan TSH och depression och tre artiklar kunde påvisa ett positivt samband mellan TPOAk och depression. Slutsatsen är att det verkar finnas ett samband mellan subklinisk hypotyreos och depression samt att TSH och TPOAk inte enskilt utgör markörer för depression men det sammantagna värdet av dem bör kunna ge en indikation på om det finns ett samband eller inte.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate a possible link between subclinical hypothyroidism and depression. The hypotheses that where being tested are: "the level of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) can be used as a marker for depression" and "the level of thyroperoxidase antibodies (TPOAb) can be used as a marker for depression". The method used is a literature review. Scientific articles published in 2012 and forward meeting the criteria for inclusion have been used. These criteria were that the articles would be original, peer-reviewed studies, measuring levels of TSH and TPOAb in serum and examine the link between hypothyroidism and depression by looking at serum levels of TSH and TPOAb. The studies should not be conducted on animals. The results show that four out of seven articles indicate a positive association between hypothyroidism and depression. It also shows that three articles were able to demonstrate a positive association between the TSH and depression and three articles were able to demonstrate a positive association between TPOAb and depression. The conclusion is that there appears to be a link between subclinical hypothyroidism and depression and that the levels of TSH and of TPOAb do not individually represent markers of depression but the overall value of them should be able to give an indication of whether there is a connection or not.
