Physical disorders often hidden causes of depression

It is a common misdiagnosis to diagnose a psychological or psychiatric disorder, such as depression, when symptoms are actually caused by an underlying physical disorder. Some of the conditions that may cause depression-like symptoms include diabetes, thyroid disorders, chronic fagitue symptoms, endocrine disorders, and many others; see misdiagnosis of depression.
