De Montfort University Diet and Lifestyle Research

An investigation into the impact of diet and lifestyle on the management of Lipoedema.

The second phase of this project will commence in 2022 using the data collected in the first phase. The aim of the study is to gain an understanding of the self-reported dietary and lifestyle impact on the efficacy of management for lipoedema conditions through an administration of an online survey questionnaire to a UK population with lipoedema. All data will be kept confidential at all times. Raw data will be kept on password-protected computers, which will only be accessible to the named researchers. Raw data will be destroyed after five years in accordance with DMU ethics policy.

We are currently looking for applications from a talented and motivated PhD student to join our investigation into the impact of diet and lifestyle on Lipoedema. For further information please click on the link below or contact Dr Jessica Jin (email below).
