I had a total thyoidectomy is 2000. My condition is not controlled on hormone replacement therapy. My meds need to be readjusted constantly. I was diagnosed with Diabetes this past summer. Could my hypothyroidism cause diabetes? And why or why not?
Do not know if there is a relationship between the two conditions but it is my understanding that type 2 diabetes can be associated with obesity. If that is the case you might want to look at a diet change. Eating a diet mainly of fruits and vegetable could the answer.
