The Chronic Illness Inclusion Project Lipoedema Reports

Lipoedema UK has submitted a response to the Government’s consultation on its forthcoming Women’s Health Strategy.
Our response was compiled from data collected by the Chronic Illness Inclusion Project which kindly hosted a section on its survey for the responses of people with Lipoedema. We shared this widely among our members and on social media. 
Their responses were unsurprising, with many women feeling disbelieved, sometimes for decades, not obtaining diagnoses easily, and being refused meaningful treatment.
