I was wondering if having high blood pressure can be due to taking thyroid meds. I have no thyroid and take 1 grain of Armour and 50mcg of levothyroxine, I have raised cholesterol and I had my BP taken 4 weeks ago 152 over 80, I had to go back in 2weeks time and it was still raised, the nurse wanted me on a 24 HR monitor as she feels I should be on medication for it, I have had that done and now I have to see my GP for the results. I don't want to go on meds for BP if it can be down to either to much or too little thyroid meds. I am going on holiday next Sunday and I think they want to put me on meds before I go but am a bit apprehensive as I don't want to be taking meds if I don't need to.
If anyone who has experienced the same problem, I would appreciate it if you could share your take on this.
