In Reply to: High Bp -Cholestrol-TSH? posted by Bach on May 06, 2000 at 22:00:16:

: This week I have had strep throat.
: Visited the doc twice. Both times I was told my Bp was high 140/92.Is this very high? Or borderline? My choletrol was high. And my throid/tsh was high.
: I am wondering if all of this could be a result of my strep. To be honest the gland and throat pain was almost unbearable,
: Does illness raise blood pressure?
: I will get the thyroid rechecked and go from there I think.
: All comments appreciated
The TSH doesn't have any thing to do with high B/P. The high cholesterol does effect the cardiovascular system as a whole. You really need more thyroid testing for sure, hard to tell what is wrong just by doing a TSH, you really need a complete thyroid panel done and go from there. Also, an elevated TSH really indicates your thyroid levels are low, can be very confusing to understand. Your B/P elevation is boderline, but need to watch it. A sore throat is different than neck pain, if you are experiencing neck pain in the front (anterior) you'll probably want your Dr. to a thyroid ultrasound after you have more thyroid labs done. Hope this helps you.
