Inflammation can cause all of these things. High blood pressure is a result of endothelial inflammation. The endothelium is the skin lining all 50, 000 miles of blood vessels in the body. When inflamed it can cause WBC in urine. An inflamed thyroid will dysfunction. Skin rashes are indication of inflammation. A food sensitivity like celiac disease can cause all of these through inflammation.
