Hello,

Generally, the salt with the diet may affect the blood pressure and fatty and sweet foods may affect the lipid levels. As a rule, gaining weight may cause high levels of blood pressure as well as lipids. So every food that may cause you to gain weight should be considered related to both these abnormalities.

I hope this answers your query. I remain at your disposal in case further medical assistance is needed.
