Today, we explore research conducted by Joanna Dudek and colleagues from Poland, published in 2018.

The authors suggest that because lipedema is a chronic condition, it can lead to feelings of helplessness and depression.

Their findings indicate that both appearance-related distress and depression significantly impact the quality of life.

This important research highlights the need to understand how lipedema affects all aspects of women's lives and emphasizes the necessity of combating weight bias in healthcare and society.
