Lipoedema UK Big Survey 2014 Research Report

In 2014 250 women with Lipoedema took part in our survey about their experiences with Lipoedema. 

The results give a clear picture of what living with Lipoedema is like and reveal that along with the pain and discomfort caused by Lipoedema, many simple tasks that other people regard as straightforward become extremely challenging for people with Lipoedema.

Lipoedema UK’s Big Survey 2014 led to the development of the Royal College of GPs’ e-learning course, a half hour course, which enables GPs to recognise Lipoedema and diagnose patients

Our survey was created by Lipoedema UK, the Lymphoedema Department at St George’s Hospital, London, and the support of the Lymphoedema Support Network.

Thank you to everyone who shared their experiences and told us about their journey.
