Is it Cellulite or Is It Lipedema
IS IT CELLULITE OR IS IT LIPEDEMA?
It is estimated that 10% of women could have lipedema...that is as common as left-handedness. Most of these women have no idea and are living in a world of calorie restriction, shame and ridicule. Many will develop eating disorders and most have no idea that the bumpy fat on their hips and thighs is a medical condition that has treatment options. Join us to learn the key distinguishing features of lipedema vs cellulite, how it is diagnosed, how to treat it and the important nutrition strategies to help your patient regain control of their lives.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • List three distinguishing features of lipedema vs obesity.


  • Summarize the referrals and treatments that would benefit a patient with lipedema.


  • Describe the diet strategies that can be helpful for lipedema.
