    Yes. If you know that you have an autoimmune condition it DOES increase the statistics of future autoimmune problems like Lupus, Addison’s, RA, Cushing’s, etc. (many more)

    Because your body has already proven itself to be unreliable in it’s immunity actions (Hashi’s) it’s assumed that there will lbe more. Many patients with autoimmune thyroid itis often develop adrenal issues. (adrenal insufficiency)

    So odds are your mom’s thyroid is autoimmune since she has a second autoimmune deficiency. Don’t get scared these things can be managed but it is important to understand your risk factors.
