I am curious how many other CKD sufferers also have hypothyroidism? I wonder if there is any link between an underactive thyroid, and the onset of CKD. I have tried to research this online, and come up with a couple of studies that suggest there may be a link, but it's not discussed much. For me, it's the only factor I can think of that may have caused my CKD, as I had none of the usual contributory factors. My doctor says that some people 'just get' CKD for no apparent reason, but I'm not sure that makes sense to me.
