Synthroid and high blood pressure
I am a 45-year female, 102 pounds, who is currently taking .88mcg of synthroid (past year). I exercise 6 days a week (run/aerobics) do not
eat red meat, and watch my diet. I recently had blood
pressure readings about 130/70, 145/73 at drug stores
and doctor appointments. This has happened within the
last few months. Could the hypothroidism be contributing
to the higher readings or could I be developing hypertension?

May be developing hypertension.  Check thyroid labs as too much synthroid (or any cause of hyperthyroidism) can cause hypertension.

If my Ft4 and Ft3 are not in the upper 1/3 of there ranges, I just do not feel well at all. High bloodpressure can be from untreated hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. The TSH is uselss IMO.
