Schmidt’s Disease

Posted by mims123 @mims123, Jul 18, 2021

Can anyone please tell me their symptoms and treatment?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Autoimmune Diseases group.

@mims123 — I did a search of Connect and was not able to find anyone discussing Schmidt Syndrome. I did find some information about the condition that mentions it's a combination of several disorders and talks about the treatments.

"Schmidt syndrome refers to the combination of autoimmune primary adrenal insufficiency (Addison’s disease) with autoimmune hypothyroidism and/or type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM), and is part of a larger syndrome known as autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type 2 (APS-2) or polyglandular autoimmune syndrome type II (PAS II)." — Schmidt Syndrome and Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndrome Type 2: https://www.hopkinsguides.com/hopkins/view/Johns_Hopkins_Diabetes_Guide/547131/all/Schmidt_Syndrome

Have you been diagnosed with Schmidt Syndrome?

@johnbishop – John, this is an excellent article- taught me something new in the autoimmune field.
I also noted that children with T1 diabetes should be screened for hypothyroidism and celiac disease. The 3 conditions are seen together more often than I was aware
