    Hi guys
    I'm new to the forum, and to studying!!!
    Can you help me by telling me what is actually meant by physiological factors? The question i have to answer is - Name physiological factors that control Blood Pressure?
    Am i on the right lines when i think - diet, exercise, less stress/drinking/smoking etc?

    I think you're on the right lines but can't say much more I'm afraid, I think it is physical things like the smoking/general stress/anxiety like you said? Things that are controllable and on the outside like an external factor kind of?! Don't take my word for it but I think you are right!

    erm they're all external factors, and long term

    ok, so imagine..you're excercisng, what happens to your body? You breathe faster, heart rate goes up, what would all this lead too?

    its a fairly simple question
