Lipoedema UK encourage you to continue your support of the
Charity and its work. By being a member, you are supporting our work in
raising awareness of Lipoedema and encouraging new research to find a cure.
Lipoedema UK have had an amazing first few years as a registered charity.
Events, collaborations, journal and web articles have raised awareness and
driven research in the medical community and it is now easier for patients
to get information to improve their lives.
Lipoedema often runs in families, so it is highly likely that there is a
genetic component to the condition. Thanks to a recent generous donation,
St George’s Hospital in London has launched an extensive genetic research
programme aiming to identify the cause of Lipoedema. Whilst St George’s has
conducted research before, this new study will be the first involving whole
genome analysis for patients within one family.
You will see from the above that the Charity continues to work hard to fund
research and provide general support to its membership through regular
newsletters and an annual conference, and I hope you will decide to
continue your support by renewing your membership
