I was diagnosed with diabetes just a week ago, plus I have had an underactive thyroid for 32 years, apparently they go hand in hand! (wish somebody had told me). I should also have had my thyroxine raised by 25mgs per day 3 months ago. There is a big possibility that the lack of thyroxine over 3 months has tipped me in diabetes 2 simply because my system just could not cope with things quick enough.
I am mystified and terrified by all of this. Has anybody else heard about this?
