Ladies, if you can’t lose weight despite a sincere effort to eat well and exercise often, or if you do lose weight but it balloons back up, read on… You just might have lipedema.
If your legs look out of proportion to the top part of your body, especially if your legs are thicker, like telephone poles, you might have lipedema.
If your legs are painful to touch, or if they bruise easily, then you might have lipedema.
Lipedema affects more than 17 million American women. We think that’s a low number, too, because lipedema is rarely diagnosed. Most doctors don’t understand what it is because they receive little or no education about the lymphatic system and fat metabolism.
