Analyzing the Misdiagnosis in Patients with Lipedema

  • Today, I have an excerpt from a free webinar with Siobhan Huggins that was provided by Lipedema Simplified during Lipedema Awareness month in June 2021.
  • Siobhan is a young woman in her 20’s who discovered she had lipedema just recently in September 2020.
  • At the time of her diagnosis, she was already using a keto diet and had lost a great deal of weight.
  • In this excerpt, she wonders if she was only diagnosed because of the weight loss, and are there many women who are misdiagnosed as obese?
  • Additionally, she speculates that a selection bias may result in a bias in lipedema research.
