I was doing some research on my daughter's Cushing's disease and came across the Pineal gland. There is research that there is a direct link between this gland and depression.

Wondering if anyone else has any information on this? Have you seen an endocrinologist for your depression? etc.

Interesting, pitmom.

I did a quick google search and you're right. I have an upcoming ultrasound of my Thyroid and then a referral to an Endocrinologist. I know that I have some problems, by my blood work, but what I have learned is that most of our doctors and even Specialists fail when it comes to "Functional Medicine." People with strange illnesses usually learn/discover these types of dx's when they find a FM Doctor and most often have to pay out of pocket.

The Pineal Gland releases Melatonin and affects Circadium Rythem (SLEEP!). Most people with Depression have sleep disturbance issues. I know that I do!

Thx Kelliin Cali for writing this.My sleep cycle is still not fixed.No Medicine is helping me.

I might need to see FM doc but out of pocket means expensive which i can not afford unforturnately.
