Hypothyroidism, am I diabetic too?

Hi, I was diagnosed years ago with hypothyroidism. Just lately I've noticed I'm often thirsty and weeing a lot at night. Someone mentioned insulin disruption which got me thinking. Could I be diabetic ? Or have pre diabetes?

I suppose I should go to see my GP. I've got enough problems with all the other symptoms of hypothyroidism, really don't need this!

Any ideas? Thanks

Sue, Did the increased thirst and night time urinating start before you added T3?

Yes it started before the T3 was added.

Sue, may be an idea to mention it to your GP in case a diabetes test is needed.

Thanks clutter. I've made an appointment this morning. Going next Tuesday.
