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?
