Living with Lipedema

This week, we hear from Kerry Jones, a personal chef living in Portland, Oregon. Her passion for cooking comes from years of struggling with all kinds of body issues. Just recently, she learned she has a condition called Lipedema. Lipedema is a medical disorder that causes fatty deposits to remain located in certain areas, no matter how much a woman does to get rid of it. It’s often misdiagnosed as obesity. The condition affects one in every 10 women in the U.S. As it progresses, a woman’s legs can become extremely large, heavy and painful. After learning about symptoms and treatment options, Kerry decided to take action.  Her story is entitled “Living with Lipedema.”
