High tissue copper has been associated with an increased incidence of depression, especially in women, often occurring  near their menstrual period.

Depression and High Copper
The causative role of excess copper in depression may be due to its producing neurotransmitter imbalances in the brain, or its interfering with other nutrient minerals such as iron, zinc and manganese.

Depression and Hypothyroidism
An elevation of calcium relative to potassium is associated with hypothyroidism. Depression is often seen when a concomitant hypothyroid condition exists.

Depression, Sodium and Potassium
A low tissue sodium to potassium ratio is related to many emotional changes  including depression. A low sodium to potassium ratio may also be related to phobias, withdrawal, repression and indecision.
