About this Event

"The Disease That's Called Fat"

Lipoedema Explained By Medical Experts

Join us for this informative evening, exploring Lipoedema with the experts who treat the condition on a daily basis.

Statistics indicate that 1 in 9 New Zealand women are living with the fat disorder called Lipoedema (also spelt Lipedema).

Lipoedema is a relatively common fat disorder that is often mistaken for simple obesity. One of the hallmarks of the disease is that lipoedema fat is relatively unresponsive to diet and exercise. These measures may lead to weight loss in other areas, but the size of the hips and legs remains disproportionately large.

If you think you or a loved one may have Lipoedema, come along and hear from the experts what you can do about it, the treatments available and the support you can find in the Canterbury region.

  • ​Those who scored 50% or more on the Lipedema Quiz
