Lipedema as a Social Problem

  • Today I’d like to tell you about a study by researchers in Poland. The paper is called: Lipoedema as a Social Problem. A Scoping Review. It was published in the peer-reviewed journal International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health in November 2021.
  • The aim of this review was to present the current knowledge about lipedema in a social context.
  • This paper exemplified for me the need for more research about the social impact of lipedema on women with this diagnosis.
  • Although the data presented in this paper is limited, it gives us a place to start and where we need to go.
  • At the Lipedema Project, we hope to contribute to the body of knowledge in this area ourselves.
