Examining the Incidence of Misdiagnoses in Lipedema Patients
- Today’s excerpt is from a free webinar by Siobhan Huggins, presented by Lipedema Simplified in June 2021 during Lipedema Awareness Month.
- Siobhan, a woman in her twenties, had only recently discovered her lipedema diagnosis in September 2020. At the time of her diagnosis, she had already experienced significant weight loss through a keto diet.
- In this excerpt, she ponders whether her diagnosis was influenced by her weight loss and questions if many women with lipedema are misdiagnosed as obese.
- Furthermore, she raises the possibility of selection bias impacting research in the field of lipedema.
