  • Karen,

    High blood sugar can effect the endocrine system exacerbating thyroid dysfunctions.

    Hyperthyroidism is usually associated with poor blood glucose control and a need for additional insulin. An increased metabolism “clears” insulin from the system at a faster rate, and an increased production and absorption of glucose can raise blood sugars.

    If left, it can lead to insulin resistance where cells are unable to respond to insulin to use glucose for energy. Hopefully things will improve for you after your op.

    I have Hashimotos so can't offer any further advice but you are welcome to repost your question.

    I wish you well,

    Flower
