Factors affecting fluid balance

Factors affecting fluid balance in the body include:

Body temperature

If the body temperature increases, more water is lost from the body in sweat


A high salt intake can result in increased water reabsorption, which reduces the volume of urine produced. Diuretics, such as alcohol, tea and coffee, can also increase the volume of urine


Nervousness can result in an increased production of urine

Blood pressure

When the blood pressure inside the kidney tubules rises, less water is reabsorbed and the volume of urine will be increased (but not decreased)

When the blood pressure inside the kidney tubules falls, more water is reabsorbed into the blood and the volume of urine will be decreased
