The Link Between Inflammation and Fibrosis

  • Today, I have an excerpt from a free webinar with Karen Ashforth that was provided by Lipedema Simplified during Lipedema Awareness month in June 2021.
  • Karen is an occupational therapist with more than 20 years of experience in treating lymphedema and lipedema.
  • In this excerpt, Karen talks about fibrosis, or the hardening and thickening of tissue, that can be experienced in all stages of lipedema.
  • She draws the link between inflammation and the formation of fibrosis and how diet may be instrumental in preventing the onset or progression of fibrosis.
