Lipedema and Interstitial Fluid Dynamics

  • Today, I want to share insights from a publication by Drs. Allen, Schwartz, and Herbst titled “Interstitial Fluid in Lipedema and Control Skin.”
  • This paper, published in the peer-reviewed journal Women’s Health Reports in October 2020, aimed to investigate the accumulation of fluid around vessels and between skin fibers in the thigh tissue of women with lipedema.
  • Additionally, the study sought to identify whether abnormally permeable (leaky) blood vessels were more prevalent in the thighs compared to the abdomen in women with lipedema.
