Living Well With Lipedema Flash Briefings

What is Lipedema?

Lipedema, the disease they call fat, is a chronic fat/lymphatic disorder that affects 17 million women in the USA and as many as 350 million women worldwide. It is often mistaken for simple obesity. Generally under-recognized and misdiagnosed, symptoms include pain, swelling, and weight gain disproportionately distributed in the thighs, buttocks, legs, and hips with a smaller upper body.

These Alexa Flash Briefings are mini podcasts of 3-5 minutes that offer news, updates, research tidbits, and overall self-care tips and tools to manage this chronic disease.

Join our team of coaches, mentors, and experts in learning, connecting, gathering tips and tools, and even laughing now and again – day-by-day. There is hope. You can manage your fat/lymphatic disease and live a glorious life.
