Lipedema is a condition that causes excess fat to accumulate in the lower part of the body. Lipedema most often involves the buttocks, thighs and calves. The upper arms can also be affected. 

Lipedema is real and a very painful fat disease with no cure. For 4 decades the medical field had failed me telling me just to watch what I ate and exercise or would say its just in my head and I have been in pain and discomfort for years not knowing why. I was diagnosed with Stage 1 Lipedema which has affected my health physically and mentally.

It is sad that our doctors have little knowledge of this condition and have barely any clinics or RMT's who are certified to do Lymphatic massage drainage within Ontario to help with this condition. Like thousands of women I am so frustrated their are no surgeons here in Ontario or Canada who can perform the liposuction specifically for Lipedema. There is no support or coverage and the costs are ridiculously expensive and we can not afford to go the US and Europe to have liposuction done who are more advanced with this then we are here.

We need our government to step in and help pay for our treatments, and get more clinics and pay for surgeries. Until there is a cure we need your help!
