Our expert says:
There are absolutely no blood tests that usualyl shed light on a diagnosis of clear anxiety disorder or depression. Indeed, I worry when some readers mention their doctor having done some blood tests which I know are bogus or useless in their situation. So don't assume there are useful tests which have not been done. If you still wonder about this, just ask your doc whether there are any tests which would help, and discuss this with him/her. A sensible psychiatrist would not be likely to do tests either. Only in some of the rarer cases of anxiety as a symptom, lacking other likely symptoms of an anxiety disorder, but occurring along with other symptoms suggesting an uncomon physical disorder, might some tests be useful in exploring that possibility.
