This study examined the correlation between lipedema and multiple microlymphatic aneurysms of lymphatic capillaries in lipedema-affected skin regions.
This paper shows an extreme case of lipedema complicated by lymphedema in a 52-year old woman that resulted in an abdomen of enormous dimensions.
Butchers broom plant extract has been reported to improve lymphatic flow, and the trace mineral selenium has been shown to improve lymphedema.
