Absolutely EDS99, good find!
Acetazolamide (Diamox) I’m sure, can cure or ease a myriad of symptoms caused by an abnormal raise in intracranial pressure.
I find it amusing that several study papers say that various conditions, linked to raised intracranial pressure, occur in obese women. I would say that a certain type of obesity is CAUSED by raised intra-cranial pressure, especially when it begins to affect the pituitary.
I’d never been obese (or even close) in my life, my highest weight was 11 stones at full-term pregnancy. Not even several years of disablement caused obesity, that is NOT UNTIL my pituitary became flattened, then it was a different story!! Same diet, same lifestyle but now DEFICIENT hormonal output, the weight piled on.
In order to address this problem, full pituitary hormonal status needs evaluating and supplementing where necessary, to aid weight-loss. Otherwise, from my own experience and from what I’ve read, attempts at weight-loss are futile and rarely successful.
