[IP] Hypothyroidism

HYPERthyroidism is also an autoimmune disease that can be associated
with Type I diabetes.  Elissa (age 17), developed this two years ago. 
Different doses of medication were tried without much success.  This
condition (also called Grave's Disease) makes diabetes control very
difficult.  Her blood sugars were fluctuating considerably, even with
the pump. This past December she received radioactive iodine and
FINALLY the blood sugars are starting to fall in line again!!

If you want to know how YOUR thyroid is functioning, ask your endo to
do a test for antithyroid antibodies.
