I have suffered from an under active thyroid for over 30 years and co-incidentally (or not) I was also diagnosed with high blood pressure approx 28 years ago. I have never been able to get my blood pressure under control, despite numerous different drugs (all with side effects) loosing weight (which is difficult) eating healthily, exercising and drinking copious amounts of beetroot juice. (supposed to help in bp reduction). So its not like I dont try. I have read somewere that its possible thryoxine can increae bp but docs will have none of it. Has anyone else out there come to the same conclusion? I have now come to the end of my tether with all the drugs and the side effects for bp treatment. I cant live without the thryoxine as life would be awful, but nor can I go on with the bp treatment. There are times when I feel really down and wonder what the future holds. I am 58. Any advice?
