The Basics of Lipedema & Lymphedema

  • Today, I have an excerpt from a presentation given by Dr. Emily Iker at our Heart 2 Heart virtual event that was held in October 2022.
  • Dr. Iker is a physician with expertise in lymphology with a practice in Santa Monica, California.
  • In this excerpt, Dr. Iker describes the symptoms of lipedema and how she uses ultrasound in her practice to see what is happening under the skin in the subcutaneous fat tissue.
  • She also discusses the importance of fascia and how this may be impaired in lipedema.
