Lipedema Patient Roundtable: January 2024

Published: 19 January, 2024

Compression, compression, compression! The main flow of conversation revolved around this all-important component of lipedema (and lymphedema) management. Cara Cruz’s own certified lymphedema therapist, Megan Glod, joined the panel as a special guest to answer questions and offer guidance on everything from skincare and finding a good lymphedema therapist, to best practices when choosing day and nighttime compression garments.

Pattie Cornute’s Lipedema Fitness group is in the midst of its Mindful Movement collaboration with April Sluder’s The Lipedema Journey, and her new love for “rope flow” was discussed. Siouxie Boshoff’s decision to “eat what feels good to her body” was met with hearty agreement.

Dr. Karen Herbst graced the Roundtable with her presence and shared her current interest in electrolyte fluid levels as well as compartment syndrome. “Fascia is the highway of the body” was a powerful statement made during the Roundtable.

The power of community and the support found when gathering together each month could be felt throughout the evening, as is customary for the Roundtable. Anticipation is also building for the annual Fat Disorders Resource Society Conference, and representatives from both FDRS and the Lipedema Foundation will be in attendance next month to answer questions!

Special thanks go to anchor panelists, moderator, and amazing guest:

Lympha Press is committed to supporting lipedema patients and helping them manage their condition with the Optimal Plus, indicated by the FDA for the treatment of lipedema. To find out more, visit www.lymphapress.com.
