Blood pressure is influenced by the cardiac output, which is the amount of blood that goes out of the heart. Make sure to always consult with your concerned doctor and keep a track of your blood pressure levels at intervals by opting for a blood pressure meter in India. Body fluid determines this cardiac output. Water follows salt, so whenever you consume salt, fluid would accumulate in the body. The more fluid you have, the more blood volume. And the more pressure the arteries need to push this blood throughout the body. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
