Lipedema: Learn About This Disorder That Can Cause Weight Gain

There’s a relatively common fat disorder called lipedema, often mistaken for simple obesity. It is estimated to affect 10 to 17 million Americans with signature characteristics of a slim upper body with large hips and legs. Lipedema is often misdiagnosed and under recognized. 

Lipedema expert Dr. Stanley Rockson, professor and researcher at Stanford University, uses the analogy of a bank to explain how the cells in lipedema patients work. “They’re a very unusual bank, because they accept deposits but no withdrawals,” he told NPR. Currently, the treatment options that are recommended for lipedema include:

  • liposuction 
  • non-surgical treatments such as compression therapy, low-impact exercises and massage therapy

If you have concerns, always talk to your doctor. Enjoy your healthy life!

My grandma had Parkinson's disease, she is about 80 years old it was detected 7 years ago. it was getting more difficult to live for her, because of stiff muscles she can't even move. L-dopa and carbidopa medicines are given, but won"t give much relief. She can"t eat food and the skin is damaging forming ganglia. This is may be the last stage of disease.. nothing was really working to help her condition. Finally she started on parkinson's herbal formula i purchased from Health Herbal Clinic, i read alot of positive reviews from other patients who used the parkinson's herbal treatment. she used the herbal remedy for 7 weeks, its effects on parkinson's is amazing, all her symptoms gradually faded away, she feed very more freely by herself now! (Visit www. healthherbalclinic. weebly. com or email at healthherbalclinic@ gmail. com) I recommend this Parkinson's herbal formula for all Parkinson's Patients.

Lipedema is real. It almost took my mobility. I have fought back and worked hard to regain my mobility. I encourage everyone to keep moving, eat healthy and wear compression.
