LIPOEDEMA

Lipoedema usually is triggered by puberty, but can be triggered or worsen during or after pregnancy.   There isn’t a cure for lipoedema at the moment, but research is still ongoing. There are treatments available to help you manage it or slow it down.   If Lipoedema is diagnosed early, which currently is very rare, it is possible to prevent a significant expansion of lipoedemic fat cells by highlighting the risk factors and education on diet, exercise, skin care and the wearing of compression garments. Estimates of the incidence of Lipoedema vary widely, and range as high as 11% of the post-puberty female population.
