At Dr Swapna diabetic care we believe that Nearly all thyroid diseases are treatable. Hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism often require long-term or lifelong treatment, depending on the specifics of the diagnosis. Abnormal thyroid function can have a major impact on diabetes control and increase a person’s risk of developing diabetic complications. For people with Type 1 diabetes, annual screening is advisable. For people with Type 2 diabetes, screening should be done at the time of diagnosis and then repeated every five years thereafter.
