Diuretics vs Compression

  • Today, I have an excerpt from a presentation by Dr. Matthew Carmody during the Lipedema Simplified Summer Boot Camp as part of Lipedema Awareness Month in June 2022.
  • Dr. Carmody is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and a Diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine.
  • He recently retired from his practice as an Internal Medicine practitioner to focus on lipedema and obesity medicine.
  • In this clip, Dr. Matthew Carmody introduces us to the adipocyte and the pathophysiology of lipedema.
  • He explains why diuretics don’t help with fluid congestion and why compression does.
