Lipedema is a chronic medical condition characterized by a symmetric buildup of adipose tissue (fat) in the legs and arms that occurs almost exclusively in women. It is a common but underrecognized disorder. Lipedema may cause pain, swelling, and easy bruising and be accompanied by an unusual texture within the fat that can feel like rice, peas, or walnuts beneath the surface of the skin.
At the Lipedema Foundation, we support collaborative research that addresses the basic biology, genetics, and epidemiology of lipedema with a mission to define, diagnose and develop treatments.
