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.

You Are Not Alone
Support, understanding, shared experiences. So many of us with lipedema struggle alone with doctors and family who don't understand about lipedema, or even worse, don't believe us.
Our Tribe Community creates a safe space to learn, to find what's right for you and your body. You can manage lipedema and live your best life.
You are not alone!
