Welcome to the forum. It is nice to know that your hormone levels are normal. If you are strict about your diet and take medications as prescribed by your treating doctor. Your type 2 diabetes will get under control. Maintain your blood sugar level so that you do not enter in complications when you conceive.

Take your medication for the thyroid dysfunction and stay connected with your doctor. Thyroid dysfunction causes infertility. It is important to get your thyroid function improve. Many patients have conceived after treatment.

When your thyroid levels are normal consult a gynecologist and alert her if you have any menstrual problems. You may need to have your follicular study done. Take her help to know your ovulation time for easy conception. You and your partner may have to go through some investigations like blood tests, USG, Semen analysis, etc.

You do have chances to conceive. Do control your weight. Maintain a strict diet and adequate rest.
Have a nice day, take care.
