Take one at a time..: I'll presume the graves disease was DX yrs ago; an autoimmune form of hyperthyroidism which will eventually become hypothyroid (under active). Type i diabetes is also an autoimmune disease; not unusual to develop a 2nd. Good endocrinologist will manage both.. Most uterine growths are benign fibroids, but gynecologist must make specific diagnosis and specific rx. Take deep breath, 1 step at a time.

Bpituitary problem: With multiple gland problems this could be a sign of problems in the pituitary gland. You need to have her evaluated for this starting with your primary care doctor and gland doctor.
