Are the Kidneys connected to the Thyroid?

Recommended Posts

Not literally of course, but I am diagnosed to have a kidney yin deficiency. For all my life, I have always:

  1. Woken up each morning thirsty or with a dry mouth,
  2. Sleep late or have trouble sleeping,
  3. I have a lot of trouble gaining weight (I am tall and thin),
  4. My tongue has always been red.


However, these are also the symptoms of hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid).


I had my thyroid tested 2 years ago, and 2 years before that, because thyroid problems run in the family. But my thyroid has always been fine. But I display all the symptoms of an overactive thyroid so a lot of people always ask me to get my thyroid checked.
