You Are Your Own Best Resource

With Lipedema we have learned over the years that we all present differently with symptoms, and we all respond differently to treatments. We have learned by personal trial and error.

We share to spread awareness, to hopefully help others be diagnosed sooner than we were, and we share how we are personally treating our symptoms and the things we find that help us, in the hopes it may help someone else.

I am not a doctor, I am not a CLT, nor am I a personal trainer; and even if I was any of those, I am not yours. I do not know your body, your symptoms, how you present or how you will respond..

Even all the amazing doctors, surgeons, CLTs, personal trainers , etc. who share about Lipedema are not your personal doctor, CLT, etc.

You have to learn about your body, your symptoms, and treatments that work for you. You have to take ownership in your care.

What you see online is information and ideas for you to investigate for yourself, to talk to your doctor, your CLT, etc. about. 

You have a responsibility to protect yourself. Take in what you learn, and investigate if it sounds good to you - and please ease into anything new.

Be weary of anyone who says this is what you must do, if it worked for me it will work for you, if I can do it you can. 

That’s not how lipedema works, that’s not how life works. It is your one body, and you need to do the work to learn more about it. Learning what works for someone else is great, and people sharing has helped change how lipedema is treated, but you are still responsible for your body.
