    I believe it started as LOW but when you are on thyroid meds like Synthroid, the kidneys may fail filtering toxic products because of low blood pressure. This can create a high blood pressure with time.

    Let's see what others had to say.

    According to MaryAnn Hogan's NCLEX RN Review, it's HYPOtension for hypothyroidism.
