Lipoedema: myths and facts

14:25 - 15:00

Lipoedema is much more than big and painful legs and it is at the same time associated with numerous myths. This lecture critically evaluates some of these popular lipoedema myths. Furthermore, the consensus on lipoedema which has been worked out by the European Lipoedema Forum 2019 will be sketched out. One goal of this lecture is to emphasise the urgent need to create an internet platform for health professionals offering only scientifically based facts about lipoedema.
