Stage 1 lipedema and hypermobility syndrome.
How will this effect my type 1 diabetes? No idea. How will my type 1 diabetes effect these 2? No idea.
I can tell you that I’m completely overwhelmed by the new demands of another chronic lifelong, daily management requiring, disease. I’ve known for so long that I didn’t feel good and something wasn’t right, but not until recently did a doctor actually listen.
Now, I get fitted for compression clothing and wear that everyday for the rest of my life, skin brushing everyday, and hoping that decongestion therapy and lymphatic drainage massage will start my lymphatic system pumping again. Along with supplements that I hope will provide some relief. If not, not sure what then. Now I’m a “lymphie” in addition to a T1D.
Lazy pancreas, lazy lymphatic system.

I LOVE YOU, LINDS! you can totally handle this. when i found out about my sluggish thyroid and whatnots, i went on a natural supplement rampage. it might have been mostly psychosomatic or whatever, but it did help. you look phenomenal, and your legs can suck it.
Hugs LInds! Google Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. I can’t find a relation between the hypermobility & lipedemia. One of my best friends and her son have EDS.
Not sure what to say. Life certainly is unfair at times. I know you will find the strength to deal with this. Praying for you and will support you any other way I can.
