Hi thanks for your question.
You have thick uterine lining and cancer has been ruled out once.Since the thick uterine lining is still persistent they want to take anther biopsy to rlue out cancer has not developed in due course of time.Some people like obese,with family history of diabetes and those with altered GTTare at risk of developing Diabetes and are put on medication once diabetes develop.It is good your throid status is under control.Throid status and diabetes has nothing to do with uterine cancer.
Hope this answers your question.
