    Please just take a moment to answer this Question. I would like to know if anybody has had a thyroid removed and then developed diabetes, or if any one had diabetes first and then had their thyroid removed, as I firmly believe there is a connection between these. Thank you very much for your time.

    Hello, there is a connection between diabetes and thyroid conditions, I know some members have both conditions, but unsure if any have had their thyroid removed.? Have you tried doing a google search ?

    Good luck and all the best RRB
