        I am a cadet currently at The United States Air Force Academy and
was wondering why I have constant nose bleeds after eating salty foods? I am
an intercolligate athlete and studing to be an Air Force Doctor. I often
partake in all-nighters in which I do some heavy snacking on junk foods with
a high sodium content. Realize that I am not out of shape...I currently
weigh 135 lbs, am 5'8", and have 5 1/2 percent body fat.

        Is it the sodium raising my {*filter*} pressure?

        Or is it just the altitude?

        Any information from the docs out there would be greatly
appreciated since I have to be tested in an altitude chamber soon for high
speed, high altitude jet rides.
