    This is a typical analysis and by far not a parameter.
    Try joining a FB group for IIH sufferers and then notice its not Obesity that causes it.

    Were MRVs done?  Where CT or CTA scans to check Venous compression?  Psychological exams for those with long term bracing and pressure?

    Ask WHY is CSF pooling?  Why is it not draining?  It's not Obesity - then anyone obese should have IH.

      So many variables. Could the IIH and the obesity be symptoms of a cause? Id love to see stats on how many diagnosed with IIH also have one or more MTHFR mutations and are there consistent patterns. Also what links pineal cysts (when do they inhibit free flow of CSF) with IHH (query histamine? inflammation?) Is there a connection between this and an increase in new Daily Persistent Headache syndrome? So many questions.
