Lipoedema how to tell if you have it

Lipoedema is also known as painful fat syndrome, it is estimated that 10% of women may have it but it is widley brushed off by the medical profession as obisity. The problem with that is that true lipoedema is resistent to diet and exersise. That is not to say that general obisity cannot be helped but by the time you have had a formal diagnosis you may be on your way to a downward spiral of self loathing and overeating.
