 +Thyroid peroxidase antibody (TPO) is elevated in 20% of women with postpartum psychosis, compared to 5-7% of all postpartum women.[([[https://​www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/​pubmed/​21343331|Bergink,​ V., Kushner, S. A., Pop, V., Kuijpens, H., Lambregtse-van den Berg, M. P., Drexhage, R. C., ... & Drexhage, H. A. (2011). Prevalence of autoimmune thyroid dysfunction in postpartum psychosis. The British Journal of Psychiatry, 198(4), 264-268.]])] There is an association between postpartum thyroid dysfunction and depression. In some cases, TSH should be ordered in women with a history of goitre, type I diabetes, prior postpartum depression, thyroid disease history (including prior low free T4 level), a family history of thyroid disease, or a personal history of smoking. If the TSH level is abnormal, a free T4 should also be ordered.[([[https://​www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/​pubmed/​11588143|Muller,​ A. F., Drexhage, H. A., & Berghout, A. (2001).
