I would like to share with you an excellent video covering Lipedema.
Lipedema is a painful fat disorder and if left untreated can cause multiple secondary health problems, to include mobility issues and Lymphedema. The quality of life, emotionally and physically, for individuals affected by Lipedema is often decreased due to the fact that the condition is typically dismissed as simple obesity by clinicians unfamiliar with the symptoms. Many women are affected by this disorder, often without knowing why their legs and hips are growing bigger with lumpy, painful fat.
This short video on Lipedema (Lipoedema in the UK) covers the causes of this disorder, the effects of Lipedema on the lymphatic system and current treatment options. It includes patients, researchers and medical personnel who are on the leading edge of creating awareness and treatment options.
