What has moved me lately ...
The contribution to Stern TV hit like a bomb. Here you can find the post again. Many women have realized that they are ill, and many new women have joined the social media groups “lipedema”. Many open questions and only a few answers awaited you.
On the one hand, it is good that we educate people that things are moving forward and that more people find out what is really wrong with those big legs. More than fat, too much food and no exercise. Prejudices are finally taking the wind out of the sails.
But I wonder if so many women are suffering, why can no one name the cause yet? Wouldn't that be the whole point? Unfortunately, despite everything, we are a fringe group for which it is not worth researching. The pharmaceutical industry is not going to get rich off us - that is the point. Sad but true, you can tell here: Money rules the world!
There is no cure without research into the cause
Many women have now been operated on. Is liposuction the holy grail? How many women are really well after that? Physically and physically. You only hear a few voices speaking of "I am healed". But lipedema is chronic. It can come and do whatever it wants as long as the cause is not clear. Say, nobody is cured. Where are the women who still have problems after the operation? We need to talk about it more, we must not maintain illusions. No cure without root cause research, right?
Talking, exchanging, recognizing, sticking together.
