Exploring the Potential Mechanisms Behind the Effectiveness of the Ketogenic Diet in Managing Lipedema

  • This episode is an excerpt from a presentation by Siobhan Huggins during our Innovative Solutions for Lipedema & Lymphedema virtual symposium held in October 2021.
  • Siobhan, a promising researcher who received a lipedema diagnosis in early 2021, explores potential mechanisms behind the effectiveness of the ketogenic diet for lipedema.
  • Here she discusses how keto may enhance metabolic health and lymphatic function, reduce fibrosis and hypoxia, and address hypothyroidism—an often associated comorbidity of lipedema.
