Thank you so much Marcia,for your response.
I'm 33,and I don't have any (family) history of kidney or liver problems.I do have a family history of thyroid disorder though which is why I had the blood work done.I have been reading that a thyroid problem can definitely effect kidneys and other organs too,so maybe that is what is going on.
My doctor really didn't seem concerned about ANY of my problems and just wrote out a prescription for thyroid hormone (I'm hypothyroid).I don't know if it is because I don't have insurance and she doesn't want to bother,or if it's cuz she genuinely isn't worried.
I'm still worried though...Thankfully there is a website where patients can order their own LABS without a dr.
It is a real thing and you go to an actual lab to have the blood drawn.Then they put the results online for you or mail them to you.So I can get a UA myself even if she doesn't think it's necessary.The US is a little harder to come by though,especially with no insurance.
I'm going to take my thyroid hormone and drink lots of fluids and wait about a month and then test again.If it is still high I will pursue the UA and confront my dr. with my concerns that something is not right.
I really appreciate the wonderful advice and concerns here
