Does CCSVI cause weight loss?

Postby adamt » Sun Jul 17, 2011 5:23 am

I have CCSVI of both Jugular veins and Azygos vein.
These have been 'ballooned'.
even though i have been liberated i still have the weight loss problem.

I have had Weight loss since i was a young teenager.

The only way i can gain weight is by eating excessively - 2500-3000 calories daily sporead out over 5-6 meals.
which takes my weight up to 168 pounds

if i eat 3 standard size meals a day my weight is very low = 126 pounds

i am 5' 11" tall

i just wonder whether my excessive Automatic weight loss is caused by my CCSVI or just a genetic super fast motabolism. (but my reatives dont have his problem)

but i still question why aged under 14 i was a chubby kid?

i know weight gain is a common MS symptom so it doesnt add up

I don't know, adamt. Do you have a poor appetite or find it difficult to eat? I think the autonomic nervous system has a lot to do with metabolism. Autonomic nervous system could theoretically have improvements right away after the procedure or take some time to right itself. After my recent second procedure, I am wondering also how many people who have been treated have a degree of silent restenosis going on.

cece. i would say i have a slightl poor appetite, i always have anappetite for 3 meals a day, just quite small size meals i guess.

civickiller. if anything id say i was a touch overweight, enjoying my food a bit too much as they say

so as you can imagine the confusion why from the age of approx 14 till present my appetite has been slightly below average yet my weight flies off, and is very difficult to sustain any gained weight - beyond 126-130 pounds
