Re: Paranoia and hypothyroidism...
The mental aspects of hypoT can be quite severe if the hypoT is severe and of long-standing duration. In the old days, before the condition was understood and treatment was non-existent, hypothyroid people were often confined to asylums.
I wouldn't think - although I don't know for fact - that hypoT in its milder form or of shorter duration would cause serious paranoia in and of itself, but that it could worsen paranoid thoughts that already may be present.
