  • well a couple years back I went to a endocrinologist because I was having a really low blood sugar attack and but my glucose was high the blood test said and I was on a medication that was making it go high,so I don't really believe I'm Diabetic but the endocrinologist ordered me another blood test to check my thyroid and it was normal and after that she didn't know what I had she said I wasn't Diabetic

  • I am diabetic, and my thyroid is normal. You need to go to a different doctor.

  • Diabetes and your thyroid have nothing to do with each other. Now your pancreas and diabetes might go hand in hand, and hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism are dependent on your thyroid.
