Hypertension and Fibroids

If you’re female and suffer from hypertension, have made all the dietary changes you think you possibly can and yet your blood pressure is still not dropping then you may need to consider if you have uterine fibroids. Although they can be asymptomatic fibroids are also associated with heavy periods (possibly leading to anemia), lower back pain and frequent weeing. And… they can also raise blood pressure. If this sounds like it might pertain to you, particularly if you can’t improve your diastolic (lower) blood pressure then contact your GP.
