In brief: Yes

It is fairly common for someone with one autoimmune disease to concurrently have one or two other autoimmune diseases.
I have seen patients with hypothyroidism, psoriasis and sjogren's. This combo may not be so rare.

In brief: They go together!

Both are autoimmune and are inherited. Who know this by the passage of certain body immune markers called hla type. I habe more patients with psa and hypothyroidism than any other form of arthritis.
