A 18-year-old male asked:

Low BP: Sodium is not the only thing that plays a role in regulating the blood pressure, the process is more complex than that, if your blood pressure is low and you are having symptoms, like dizziness, passing out and etc you should talk to your provider. Otherwise if you are athletic and exercise your blood pressure would be lower than other people and that's ok.
