Dear Jane, Hi, Thanks for visiting HCM. You have a past history of thyrotoxicosis
, for which you underwent radio ablation. Now what is your thyroid status? Are you hypothyroid now? Are you on any thyroid medication? if yes, what dose? and what is recent thyroid profile?
you are on verapamil
, plus ramipril still hypertensive. You may add an alpha or a beta blocker
, or a potassium channel blocker or a diuretic
after consulting your cardiologist. But yes as you have rightly pointed out, you can have secondary hypertension
. Secondary to endocrine causes like phaeochromocytoma and this also needs to be evaluated.
