I have been taking levothyroxine (50/75 mg alternate days) for the last 20 years or so, after having 80% of my thyroid removed. Recently I had my blood pressure checked and it was quite high 130/104. I had a 24 hours monitor and now I need to see my GP on Monday to "discuss" the options. I don't want to take medication to lower my blood pressure (i'm only 43 years old - don't drink, don't smoke and have a healthy diet). Do GPs have any idea about thyroid issues or should I just tell her to book me in to see an endocrinologist?
Any advice would be most welcome.
