Underactive thyroid if replaced in physiological amounts should not cause incresed sweating you should talk to your physcian to rule out other causes of hyperhidrosis if all fails you can use prescription strength antiperspirant or anticholinergics agents latter will have side effects

excessive sweating of the face and head. i have underactive thyroid and kidney disease. what could cause this sweating only on my face and head?

Hormone excess?

Sweating_
face and head sweating is more common in women that are taking hormones. it can be from excess sympathetic tone or from volume changes being monitored by internal pressure receptors as might be your case with renal disease. Check hormone levels and consult with your nephrologist or endocrinologist. this link may help but is complicated http://jap.physiology.org/content/100/5/1692.long

Dr. Saurabh Lodha answered:

Can excessive sweating and weight gain be due to a thyroid disease ?

Hypothyroidism

Thyroiditis
Yes. It would be a good idea to see your primary care physician and have a routine thyroid screening. It is a simple blood test. There are many symptoms associated with thyroid disease. If you have noticed weight gain without actively trying to do so, or without a significant change in your exercise, or eating habits, it could potentially be related to a thyroid issue.

My TSH level in 2013 was 1.00 and in 2014 it was 0.55. I have symptoms of excessive sweating and fatigue. Does my thyroid need a closer look?

No

Both are within the normal range and I would look for another cause for your symptoms. A thorough history and a physical exam are needed to further elucidate the cause of your complaints.

Is night sweats and excessive sweating a symptom from my fybromyelgia or am I coming down with something?

No

Excessive_sweating
Fibromyalgia AND excessive sweating are both related to compromised energy metabolism. The commonest cause in my experience is poor diet and all the different forms of sugar and sweeteners are usually the prime cause.
