High Blood Pressure caused by HIV or AZT
Aug 20, 2002
I'm female, 44, diagnosed in '87, started AZT in '92, added Epivir in '96, diagnosed with high blood pressure in '99, no other significant illnesses. Last counts: T-cells 804, 3000 viral load, 33 CD4 & 8's. Blood pressure is treated with 20 mgs. lotensin but is constantly checked for ups and downs. Could this be heredity or HIV or med treatment?

Your high blood pressure is is likely related to be related to factors other than HIV or your antiretroviral therapy.
