Lipoedema is an adipose tissue disorder causing bilateral symmetrical enlargement of the lower and in some cases the upper extremities in women leading to significant disproportion of the waist to hip ratio. Lipoedema is sadly rarely recognised in primary care and hence under-diagnosed. Due to lipoedema being misdiagnosed as obesity or lymphoedema, patients frequently embark on a never-ending cycle of diets and exercise regimes, resulting in further physical and psychological harm.

This lesson addresses these issues by describing the presentation, pathophysiology, diagnosis and management of lipoedema in primary care and has been developed in partnership with Lipoedema UK.
