Thyroid and diabetes

I have hypothyroidism and Hashmoto's thyroiditis can  this lead to diabetes?? I also had my thyroid taken out and both grandmothers are type 2 diabetics.

I have type 1 diabetes and hashimotos.  There is a strong relationship between various autoimmune diseases - especially between Type 1 diabetes, autoimmune thyroid conditions, celiacs disease, etc.  But I'm not sure how strong the link is between Type 2 diabetes and hashimotos.  Hashimotos can result in an underactive thyroid, which can result in weight gain.  And if you have a family history of Type 2 diabetes, then gaining weigh would increase your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.  Keep weight in check and thyroid levels (TSH) in the normal range and you can decrease your risk of developing T2 diabetes.  Hope this helps.
