I don't think they really know what causes it. Take care of yourself. If I had it I'd be trying everything suggested. I have seen cases from mild to very serious.

Do you have a good Dr? I'd be tempted to ask him if getting rid of the extra skin could help it. Maybe you could have your insurance company pay for surgery - if you wanted it. I may be way off track but in my mind excess skin could be a complication to your circulatory system. Worth researching.
