In short, lymphedema or lymph-related edema is swelling in one or more extremities that results from impaired lymphatic system flow. The lymphatic system is a network of specialized vessels (lymph vessels) throughout the body whose purpose is to collect excess lymph fluid with proteins, lipids, and waste products from the tissues. This fluid is then carried to the lymph nodes, which filter waste products and contain infection-fighting cells called lymphocytes. The excess fluid in the lymph vessels is eventually returned to the bloodstream. When the lymph vessels are blocked or unable to carry lymph fluid away from the tissues, localized swelling (lymphedema) results.
Lipedema happens when fat is distributed in an irregular way beneath the skin, usually in the buttocks and legs. Although it begins as a cosmetic concern, it can eventually cause pain and other problems. Since it is not routinely included in the medical school curriculum, it is frequently misdiagnosed, such as obesity or lymphedema. The symptoms of lipedema change with disease progression. Excessive fat accumulation and progressive lymphatic system insufficiency can produce “lipo-lymphedema” at advanced stages.
