Lipedema Source serves as a clearinghouse for info on lipedema and lipolymphedema which has been gleaned from numerous sources. It is overwhelming when first being diagnosed with lipedema, and this site has been established with those patients in mind. All patients in the lipedema community are invited to contribute to this site.

Despite being discovered in 1940, lipedema patients have suffered due to lack of awareness and research and still suffer due to a lack of knowledge among many medical practitioners. Sharing our collective knowledge greatly benefits our community.
