Dear sir

Yes it increases the blood pressure because.

Salt contains sodium chloride and eggs contains albumin causes increased colloidal pressure which causes increases blood pressure but it does not cause that much rise in the blood pressure which increases more than normal range

Salt restriction less than 4 gm per day is adviced.

Starting a betablockers are adviced.

Thanks
