No: Aaas are most commonly found in men >65yrs who have ever smoked. Smoking, age, gender and family history seem to be far more important. Eating disorders have not been associated with aaas.

Eating D/O?: Not directly.

Likely No: Abdominal aortic aneurysms generally have no symptoms. Often called a silent killer. A very large aneurysm in a small person could push on the abdominal contents and cause early full symptoms. Atherosclerosis disease of the blood vessels going to the intestines can cause pain after eating.

No: No. Risk factors for aaa's are age greater than 65, a smoking history, being male as well as a family history. The cause of aaa's is not exactly known, although many believe that they are caused by an inflammatory process.
