Causes and Management of Pain in Lipedema

  • Today I’d like to tell you about a study by a group of physicians including Dr. Uwe Wollina in Dresden, Germany, published in the medical journal Dermatologic Therapy in the January/February issue in 2021.
  • The article is called: Cause and Management of Lipedema-Associated Pain.
  • The authors believe that the causes of pain in lipedema are attributed to allodynia, exaggerated sympathetic signaling, and estrogens.
  • This review article is important for the lipedema community as it provides more information about the pain experienced by women with lipedema.
