Her parents and siblings raised her to live life fully, regardless of her condition, and that has been Blanche's lifelong credo: "You've got to decide how much living you want to do and do what it takes to live that life."
The May Lipedema Patient Roundtable featured a wide range of topics, including venous ultrasounds and the vein connection to lipedema, the differences between lipedema fat and non-lipedema fat, obesogens and toxins that impact our overall health, and the signs of Ehlers-Danlos.
Lap band surgery resulted in the loss of 171 pounds, but why were her calves still 26 inches each?
