In a way...yes.

Hashimoto's can turn into Grave's if TSI antibodies develop.

Hyperthyroidism can become hypothyroidism, but not if Grave's is firmly diagnosed. I suppose it is theoretically possible for Grave's to vanish if the TSI antibodies go away, but I have never heard of that happening.

Then there is what I had, which is unusual. You can read about it in my journal.
