From Randolph, New Jersey, USA:

I have an underactive thyroid. I've heard that there is a direction connection between this and diabetes. Is this true?


Most thyroid disease is autoimmune, as is type 1 diabetes. Some with hypothyroidism will develop diabetes. If you develop symptoms of diabetes, such as excess thirst, excess urination and weight loss, you should contact your doctor immediately.
