so far as my knowledge goes, thyroid problem is not covered under disability
. But, more important than that, u need to be aware of the fact that hypothyoridism is commonly associated with depression
or anxiety (symptoms may be decreased apetite, sleep problem, worry, palpitation
, loss of interest in work, and finally, feel like disabled, leaving job etc). And this can very well be treated by medications, by a psychiatrist
. To add, treatment of hypothyoridism is complete if we treat associated depression or anxiety, if any, and vice-versa.
