Good Description of Lipedema

Lipodema also can cause severe swelling of the ankles, legs, hips, stomach and upper arms masking as an excessive weight gain problem WHEN IN REALITY it is due to a damaged lymphatic system in the body. It is very rarely diagnosed correctly until the condition is severe (and sometimes not even then causing the person to also develop lymphedema in many cases.) Many doctors have never ever been trained to identify it because too many doctors and medical places do not have a cure of it, also because it is assumed INCORRECTLY that it is just a weight gain/obesity issue, even though many people are born damaged or horrible lymphatic systems and even the slightest trauma to the body such as the onset of puberty can trigger the swelling of the body parts.

Hypothylamic obesity is another area I should explore sometime.
