Does this describe you?

  • Have you been gaining weight, particularly in the hips and thighs?
  • Is the weight evenly dispersed between the right and left side of your hips and thighs (symmetrical)?
  • Have you noticed diets and exercise do NOT affect the extra weight on your hips and thighs?
  • Did the weight gain change after puberty, childbirth or menopause?
  • Do your legs swell during the day but are relieved by elevation?

If you answered YES to one or more of the above questions, you may have a fat disease called Lipedema. This disease affects over 11% of adult women worldwide.
