EDS and Lipedema

We’re finding Lipedema (aka Lipoedema in the UK) which causes seemingly unavoidable weight gain and fat deposits, especially but not only in the legs to be a fairly common comorbidity / co-occurring condition in the hypermobile community, as well as in the Mast Cell Diseases (MCD) community.

Likewise Dercum’s Disease. (I suspect MCAS may help to drive the latter, but just my hunch, to be clear.) So I added this section in November 2021. Find my Main EDS Resources Page <- here.
