Hi everyone. I am almost sure I have Lipoedema just waiting to to get referred. I am 69yrs next week and have had to live with this condition most of my life. I also have haemochromatosis this is a genetic iron overload and I understand that Lipoedema is also genetic. I asked my doctor if he could look into it. That was 3 weeks ago. I have phoned the surgery to see what is being done again I have not heard anything. Why is everything such a fight to get something done. Some doctors have know about this condition since the 1940's. Yet we are always the last to know. It seems to me that because of the dreaded word MONEY they put us to the bottom of the pile. Sorry for the rant I am just so fed up of trying because I get no where.
