From Los Angeles, California, USA:
If you have Hashimoto's disease you are more likely to get another autoimmune condition, though in the case of Type 1A autoimmune diabetes it is usually the first component to appear. Other less common conditions in this category are the coeliac syndrome and adrenal gland insufficiency, which are easy to screen for as anti transglutaminase and anti 21-hydroxylase antibodies. The inclusive risk for Type 1A Diabetes in a sibling is about 5%; but it diminishes with age and is very uncommon after 20.
