I will believe psychiatry will develop blood tests or brain scans for severe and persistent psychiatric disorders...never. They dont want to. They like it the way it is...ambiguous.

Remember, psychiatric disorders are NOT physical!! According to the shrinks.

Closest thing to a blood test you can get for depression is to have your GP or an endocrinologist give you thorough blood testing for thyroid problems, testosterone levels if male, type II diabetes if you are obese and middle age or older and probably a few other things like iron deficiency and anemia.

Problem is, a lot of GP docs and endocinologists wont do this stuff unless you ask them to and maybe push them to do it. Especially if you have managed care health insurance.
