The Connection Between Inflammation and Fibrosis

  • Today, I’m sharing a clip from a complimentary Lipedema Simplified webinar held in June 2021, featuring Karen Ashforth, an experienced occupational therapist specializing in lymphedema and lipedema for over two decades.
  • In this segment, Karen discusses how fibrosis, the tissue’s hardening and thickening, is prevalent at all lipedema stages.
  • She highlights the connection between inflammation and fibrosis formation and explores how dietary choices can play a crucial role in preventing or slowing down fibrosis development.
