Medical conditions and diseases increase the risk of repeated miscarriage. The diabetes mellitus condition is associated with increase in random glucose level, Thyroid gland dysfunction or hypothyroid condition or secretion of anti thyroid antibodies & luteal phase defects leading to imbalance in uterine layer formation, can lead to miscarriage.
