9/28/2020
Well, this was a jam-packed episode! I had the chance to talk (and kind of geek out) about some of the science behind lipedema and the lymphatic system with Leslyn Keith. One of the things you realize when you have lipedema is that there is a lot to learn about adipose tissue, the lymphatic system, and how to manage lipedema and lipo-lymphedema. I got the chance to ask Leslyn some questions about the lymphatic system, about the function of fat in the body - and why we need to eat fat. We...

Lipedema, Grief and Coronavirus Days - Episode 6

4/29/2020
Well, this episode was long in coming out. Sorry for the delay. I have to admit, I've been pretty focused on the news about the coronavirus, and that slowed down the process a bit, but I'm back on track now. This project may sound a little be choppier than normal because it is the first one I've done mostly by myself, with some assistance from my wonderful producer Chris Duckman. My goal has been doing this on my own without having to pester him too much, so I am on my way. To start things...

3/16/2020

Of course there were other things that would come up and I'd need to divert my attention away from the podcast and take care of other business. So in Episode 5 we look at inflammation. I...
