what are chances of having other autoimmune disease like arthritis to diabetic
I just posted in another discussion that was much the same question. I am not only a T1 but also have Graves Disease (autoimmune hyperthyroid), Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Autoimmune Hepatitis. Also developed endometriosis years ago which some believe to be autoimmune.
My father died at the age of 42 back in the mid-50s from Addison’s Disease which is an autoimmune disease of the adrenal glands.
I was told by my endo years ago that although not genetic autoimmune disease tends to be familial. I am kinda in the same boat as you, I got them all, my sister has none.
