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:
  • Anorexia/Starvation Tendency
  • Hypoglycemia
  • DMAE Need
  • Hypothyroidism

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:
fatigue definitely reduced by eating
incoherent speech
premenstrual bloating/weight gain
forgetting dreams
strictly controlled emotions
hyperthyroidism in family members
adverse reaction to delayed meals
high Metformin use
elevated basophil count
regular postprandial somnolence
having hard stools
high iodine consumption
... and more than 70 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 94% Confirm
Hypoglycemia 19% Unlikely
Hypothyroidism 3% Ruled out
Anorexia/Starvation Tendency 1% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process
