Is there a higher risk of developing thyroid disease if you have diabetes?


Yes. Suffering from an autoimmune disorder makes you more likely to develop another one. The same holds true for patients with type 1 diabetes - an autoimmune disorder. Regular annual thyroid testing is highly recommended for patients with type 1 diabetes. Consult your endocrinologist to know more about thyroid and take preventive care. #WorldThyroidAwarenessMonth
