There is only one sure fire way of getting a diagnosis, and this is
usually through a Lymphoedema clinic, via a GP. Lipoedema was first
diagnosed in the 1940's but things have progressed very little since
then. Only 10% of medical professionals have any knowledge of Lipoedema,
often getting confused with Lymphoedema. Lipoedema is a bi-lateral (and
symmetrical) limb swelling mainly affecting the legs and thighs (but
sometimes arms too) and is thought to occur as a result of an abnormal
accumulation of fat cells in the tissues under the skin. At present, we
do not understand why lipoedema occurs but a family history suggests a
genetic basis. It seems to affect females exclusively and it is usually
first noticed when there is a hormonal change such as at puberty or
pregnancy or even menopause.
