Lipedema Diet

Fat disorders such as lipedema and lymphedema can be difficult to manage. Many patients suffering from lipedema (also known as lipoedema) wonder if the condition can be treated with a lipedema diet. Unfortunately, lipedema is a complex rare adipose disorder (RAD), so the treatment plan usually consists of more things than simply lipedema nutrition or a rad diet alone. If you wish to know more about the treatment and the lipedema diet overall, please read the information provided by Dr Lanzer and his associates below.

What Makes Lipedema Worse?

Diet plays a huge role in a condition such as lipedema. Consuming too many of the “wrong” foods can make the condition progressively worse. Therefore, it is best to contact a nutritionist or dietitian early in your diagnosis. However, once you have been diagnosed, your primary care physician should provide you with a referral.

Can You Reverse Lipedema?

Can You Reverse Lipedema?

The symptoms of lipedema can only be revered in the early stages. For example, most patients find that the swelling caused by lipedema reduces after they had a good rest. However, the later stages of lipedema can only be reversed with the correct treatment. For patients who are affected by the condition to the point where it affects their daily lives, liposuction treatment can be recommended. This treatment can improve quality of life and well-being.

    What Is the Best Diet for Lipedema?

    Depending on the cause of your condition and its severity, there are a couple of things lipedema patients can do to reduce the occurrence of lipedema; this includes using a special nutritional lipedema diet.

    A healthy diet for lipedema usually depends on the person, as certain diets are more effective depending on your body type and the severity of the condition. Therefore, to determine the best diet for lipedema, it is always a good idea to speak to a healthcare professional such as a dietician or a nutritionist. The overall aim is to reduce inflammation and fluid retention in the body. In addition to recommending a suitable diet, a nutritionist or dietician can also provide you with lipedema diet recipes that make it
    easier to adapt to your new lifestyle.

    In most cases, patients are advised to reduce their intake of pasteurized dairy products, animal
    proteins, and fats. There are also many benefits to maintaining a low glycemic index and reducing the intake of simple sugars, carbohydrates, salt, wheat, glucose and products containing processed flour. Instead, patients should consume more fruit, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, and healthy protein. A gluten-free or low-gluten diet may be recommended as it can have anti-inflammatory effects for lipedema patients.

    While there is general advice available, diets can be quite diverse, going from the lipedema carnivore diet to the lipedema vegan diet. All these dieting options can make it more difficult to choose a lipedema treatment diet that is suitable for you. This is also the main reason why visiting a nutritionist or dietician is so important.

    Some patients consider the ketogenic diet for lipedema. The keto diet for lipedema can be effective in many cases, this diet includes intake of healthy fat (high fat) and low carb. The intake of artificial sweeteners is also discouraged in this diet. Patients on the diet often experienced reduced swelling and less pain. However, any diet should always be discussed with a trained medical professional.

    How Do You Treat Lipedema?

    Along with a diet for lipedema, here we will discuss some of the additional things that can be done to reduce the symptoms of lipedema.

    Exercise

    Exercise

    One of the common symptoms associated with lipedema is pain and painful fat. To reduce common pain symptoms, physicians and medical professionals recommend combining lipedema treatments with some exercise. Exercise that has proven effective to reduce pain symptoms include walking, swimming, and cycling.

    Physical and Occupational Therapies

    Physical and Occupational Therapies

    There are several physical and occupational therapies that can aid patients with lipedema too. One of them is manual lymphatic drainage therapy, a gentle rhythmic massage therapy. During this treatment, the skin is gently stretched and massaged. The treatment has shown somewhat effective to help contain the fat cells and reduce symptoms associated with lipedema.

    Liposuction

    Liposuction

    Patients with a severe case of lipedema, or those who suffer considerably due to their symptoms, choose a liposuction treatment instead. However, patients that choose liposuction should always combine their treatment with a suitable lipedema dietary plan and plenty of fat-burning exercises. Combining liposuction with plenty of exercise and a good diet can prolong the results obtained through liposuction and prevent the return of the problem.
