No specific research yet, Samish. Way early. Dr. Zamboni did say, in Bologna during the pre-congress meeting, that endothelial disrupters- like chronic Cpn, EBV, saturated fats, cigarette smoking, heavy metals, excessive alcohol, toxins etc... ARE BAD within CCSVI, because they will cause vasoconstriction and further closing of the stenosis. A heart healthy cardiovascular lifestyle is the best bet...pun intended!
Jeff has stayed on the endothelial health program and is going strong, five months out from stenting.
