Exploring Low-Carb Solutions for Lipedema: Case Study Insights

  • Today, I’ll cover two case studies on carbohydrate restriction for treating lipedema.
  • The first study, conducted by Polish nutritionists with Magdalena Jerzak as one of the authors, examines the effectiveness of a low-carbohydrate (non-ketogenic) diet for lipedema management. Published in Drugs in Poland in October 2021, this paper underscores Jerzak’s significance, especially considering her role as a keto coach for Lipedema Simplified.
  • The second case study, led by Dr. Roberto Cannataro in Italy, delves into using a ketogenic diet to manage lipedema. Titled “Management of Lipedema with Ketogenic Diet: 22-Month Follow-Up,” this paper contributes to Cannataro’s extensive research on ketogenic diets for various medical conditions. Despite differences in dietary approaches, both studies showed significant improvements in lipedema symptoms.
