There is a lab test called TSH that measures your thyroid gland and whether it is over/under acting. A couple of years ago, my value went from normal 3 to 3000, just out of the park. My doc prescribed Levothyroxine and I am back to normal values. A kidney doctor cannot help you as much as an endocrinologist or diabetic doctor can. Thyroid patients are best served by an endocrinologist, and depending upon where you live, there are plenty as well as PAs and Nurse Practioners. It also sounds like you also have other underlying problems which obviously must be dealt with as well.
