Our treatment approach in a super obese patient with lipedema: a case report lipedema
Conditions that cause edema in the lower extremities are frequently seen in the community. When it is bilateral, conditions such as heart failure, kidney failure, nephrotic syndrome, etc. usually come to mind. Lipedema, which should be considered in order to make a diagnosis, is more common than expected. Lymphedema and lipedema are often delayed in diagnosis and are progressive disorders. Lipedema is a disease that is frequently seen in women, results in fat accumulation in the extremities and especially in the legs, the origin of which has not been fully resolved, and has a hereditary role. The reason why it is frequently seen in women is thought to be the possibility of women being estrogen dependent. Another trigger is obesity. Although its prevalence in the general female population is reported to be around 10%, the cause of lipedema is still unknown. Increasing awareness among physicians about this condition will facilitate diagnosis. With this case report, we wanted to draw attention to the increasing incidence of lipedema due to obesity and many factors.
