About the lipoedema

About the lipoedema

Lipoedema is still too little known and is commonly referred to as obesity or lymphoedema.

  • Its prevalence remains poorly described,
  • its causes are still being debated by specialists.
  • It’s a progressive disease,
  • difficult to predict, with multiple complex hereditary factors,
  • due to numerous genetic and hormonal influences,
  • to possible vascular and/or lymphatic disorders,
  • even perhaps to the environment, to a sedentary lifestyle, etc.

Only one thing is certain: the discomfort and suffering felt by those who suffer from it.
