Re: [IP] thyroid/diabetes connection



Not only are diabetics  statistically more likely to contract a secondary
autoimmune disease (i.e. thyroid conditions), what's even stranger is that
while chatting on-line one evening with parents of kids with diabetes, we made
the unsettling discovery that at least 5 of us moms had hypothyroidism (me
included).....Guess that adds more credence to the theory that with Type I
diabetes, what matters ISN'T if any other relatives had diabetes (Type II that
is)...as much as whether or not a propensity for autoimmune diseases was
inherited.....
    But just try explaining THAT to the general public who probably think my
daughter got diabetes because she was a pint-sized chocoholic for years!!!!
