Hypothyroidism and Diabetes Mellitus

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is the second most commonly occurring endocrine disorder with thyroid dysfunction. Patients with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus or insulin dependent diabetes mellitus may have coexisting thyroid disease, thyroid specific antibodies, and/or evidence of polyglandular endocrinopathy (such as anti-islet cell antibodies, anti-insulin antibodies and antibodies to other endocrine organs).
