If you have lipedema or lymphedema, vascular health is an important aspect of your treatment plan.

While both lipedema and lymphedema can result in swollen limbs, they are two very different conditions. If you’d like to read more about them, check out these articles.

Any impairment of the venous system can exacerbate both lipedema and lymphedema. With limited blood flow comes limited lymphatic circulation, increased fluid accumulation, and the possibility of inflammation and tissue damage. If you’re dealing with lipedema or lymphedema, it’s important to stay on top of your vascular health.

Managing venous disease often involves lifestyle modifications, compression therapy, and medical interventions to help with lipedema or lymphedema symptoms. It’s essential for anyone with these conditions to work closely with healthcare professionals to develop a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to their specific needs.
