She had relatives with similar legs, so Amber Grainger never considered that she had a medical condition. She endured taunts from middle school classmates and continued into her adult years to try and find an answer.
Things worsened after the birth of her daughter. At one point, Amber was running miles a day, only to see no improvement. Adding to the frustration? Constant advice from medical professionals urging her to diet, though she was already eating healthy.
Thanks to a post on Instagram, Amber realized she had lipedema and was fortunate enough to connect with Dr. Lindy McHutchison of Carolina Vein Center. Dr. McHutchison, a regular panelist on Lympha Press’ Lipedema Patient Roundtables, is a lipedema expert and one of the authors of the recently issued Standard of Care for Lipedema in the United States.
For the first time, Amber felt validated. She heard, “It’s not your fault.” Dr. McHutchison prescribed a Lympha Press and Amber LOVES it. “It’s so easy to use and when I don’t, I feel the difference.”
