The Chronic Illness Inclusion Project Lipoedema Reports

Lipoedema UK  submitted a response to the Government’s consultation on its  Women’s Health Strategy.
Our response was compiled from data collected by the Chronic Illness Inclusion Project which  hosted a section on its survey for the responses of people with Lipoedema, which was 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 most often being refused appropriate treatment for lipoedema.
