Desperately Seeking Answers
I'm new to this board. I am concerned about the quality of care and work up my husband has received for his high blood pressure. I am hoping to get some guidance here from you folks.
My husband has had high blood pressure for about 14 years. He is 52 so I guess he was 38 when he was diagnosed. Wow! This is pretty young.
Anyway, I have been looking at some of the postings here and I am concerned that there has never been a "why" discussed in his treatment. I have offened wondered why he has high blood pressure. I think I read somewhere here that there is essential and another typpe. Could someone please tell me what the difference is. thanks
I also read somewhere here about folks having various hormones or endocrine testing done to help determine a cause. I was wondering if someone who speak to this as well. He has been exposed to lots of toxic chemicals and I have wondered if somehow this has contributed to his problem.
I also wanted to add that we just learned that my husband has hypothyroid - i ran his results from 18 months ago by the thyroid board and they agreed - his doctors completely overlooked this finding.
Anyway, thank you very much. I am very despirate for guidance. I have been greatly helped on the other boards with my own health problems. They have been life savers.
