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.
