    It is strange but true that the exact Cause of Primary Pulmonary Hypertension is yet to be ascertained. However, researchers in this regard suggest that certain diet drugs (appetite suppressants) can make a person more prone to developing this fatal condition.Primary Pulmonary Hypertension is basically a disorder of the blood vessels wherein the pressure in the pulmonary artery rises above normal levels, thereby posing a life-threatening risk. Several diseases or causative factors, largely unknown, may lead to the malfunctioning denoted by the term Primary Pulmonary Hypertension.’

      Appetite suppressants do have a chance of causing Primary Pulmonary, true, but sarcoidosis of the lungs primarily cause Secondary Pulmonary Hypertension, as is the case with me. Either way, Primary or Secondary, they are no fun. Thanks for dropping by and I will check out your site.
