In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
