Question from Newport, South Wales, Great Britain:
Six months ago, my sister was diagnosed with lupus, about a year ago, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, and recently, I have developed symptoms of diabetes. I will have the results of my blood tests later this week. Is there a connection with these diseases?
Lupus, hypothyroidism, and diabetes are all autoimmune disorders and tend to cluster in family members.
