I would love to hear everyone's thoughts on what they believe might have "caused" their EC. We've all asked ourselves this question a million times, and struggled with faith, and guilt and everything in between; Obviously medical history and lifestyle can be strong predictors of future illness, and this group would be a treasure trove of anecdotal data to see if we have anything in common...
My stats are.. I'm 5'10, currently about 188, floated around 200-205 most of my adult life. Stocky build, my ancestry is originally Prussian/Scottish, so I'm german/scottish. Prone to flushed skin, carry most of my body fat on my abdomen.
Overall meat and potatoes diet, lots of carbs, proud carnivore, blood tests over the years show no issue - blood pressure slightly low my whole life - slightly anemic
Pack-a-day smoke for approx 30 years
No other significant health issues ever. Only surgery was tonsil removal at 17.
