My wife is 56 and has graves disease. Her doctor just told her she may have type I diabetes, and an abnormal growth in her uterus. Talk me down?

In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
