If the body is lack of thyroid hormones, renal blood flow will decline and the growth of renal cells becomes slow. As a result, glomerular filtration rate (GFR) drops. According to GFR, Chronic Kidney Disease can be divided into five stages. The lower GFR level, the more severe their kidney disease.

In addition to the loss of GFR, hypothyroidism can also induce glomerular basement membrane thickening and mesangial matrix expansion. That is to say, hypothyroidism can cause kidney disease.
