Lipoedema UK’s Big Survey 2014 revealed that only 5% of women completing the survey had been diagnosed by their GP and led to the development of the RCGPs e learning course on Lipoedema.

Edited by Dr Dirk Pilat, contributors to the course included Professor Peter Mortimer, Dr Sarah Pledger, Lipoedema UK’s Suzanne Evans, Sharie Fetzer and Nurse Consultants Chris Wise and Denise Hardy. 

For anyone who feels they have Lipoedema but are unsure on how to approach their GP, Lipoedema UK’s Membership pack includes a GP Information pack with information on the course, benefits of a diagnosis, and early treatment, research projects and other resources on Lipoedema.
