Other Illnesses, Thyroid

Just diagnosed, my teen daughter’s blood work indicated high GAD, extremely high Anti-thyroid Peroxidase AB and high Thyroglobulin. Are these related to type 1 or some other disease?

My 14-year-old daughter was just released after being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I know that the doctors sent out some blood work for confirmation. I have received some results electronically. My pediatrician called me to check up on my daughter and asked about the results, but we do not see endocrinologist again for four weeks. She had a high GAD, extremely high Anti-Thyroid Peroxidase AB (811.2 U/ml), and high Thyroglobulin Antibody (12 IU/ml). Are all of these related to diagnosing her diabetes or could they be indicative of some other disease that can go along with type 1?
