I have fibromuscular dysplasia in several of my arteries. My doctor says this condition is usually caused from smoking, but I have never smoked. What would cause this disease to occur in so many arteries?
The cause of FMD is unknown. It is likely that there are many factors that contribute to the development of this condition. These factors may include blood vessel abnormalities, tobacco use, hormone levels, and genetic predispositions.
