Interstitial Fluid in Lipedema

  • Today I’d like to tell you about a paper by Drs. Allen, Schwartz, and Herbst called: Interstitial Fluid in Lipedema and Control Skin, which was published in the peer-reviewed journal Women’s Health Reports in October 2020.
  • The stated purpose of this study was “to determine if fluid accumulates around vessels and between skin fibers in the thigh tissue of women with lipedema.”
  • They also wanted to determine if abnormally permeable, or leaky, blood vessels were present more often in the thighs compared with the abdomen in women with lipedema.
