Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose depression with anxiety, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "depression with anxiety" as a symptom.  Here are four possibilities:
  • DMAE Need
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Anorexia/Starvation Tendency
  • Hypoglycemia

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
severe shoulder tightness
low energy/stamina
low T3 free level
poor cold weather tolerance
very great unexplained weight loss
unsound sleep
history of frequent dieting
being easily irritated
short-term memory failure
bags under eyes
carbohydrate craving during cycle
premenstrual bloating/weight gain
... and more than 80 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of depression with anxiety:
Cause Probability Status
DMAE Need 98% Confirm
Anorexia/Starvation Tendency 28% Unlikely
Hypoglycemia 4% Ruled out
Hypothyroidism 1% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process
