The Possible Mechanisms for Why Keto Works for Lipedema

  • Today, I have an excerpt from a presentation by Siobhan Huggins at our Innovative Solutions for Lipedema & Lymphedema virtual symposium that was held in October 2021.
  • Siobhan Huggins is a budding researcher and had been diagnosed with lipedema herself earlier in 2021.
  • In this excerpt, she talks about the possible mechanisms for why keto works for lipedema including its action to improve metabolic health and lymphatic function, how it may reduce fibrosis and hypoxia, and how it addresses hypothyroidism, a common comorbidity of lipedema.
