Let’s talk lipedema

Lipedema affects numerous women worldwide. Yet, the condition and its symptoms are still relatively unknown.

Main symptoms:

The lack of awareness on the condition often leads to misdiagnosis, where lipedema is mistaken for obesity or lymphedema. We’re here to put an end to that. We want to start the conversation, raise awareness, and create positive change.
So, let’s talk lipedema.

The world’s first lipedema emojis

Did you know that approximately 10 billion emojis are sent worldwide every day? Emojis are more than just fun icons – they’re powerful tools for communication and expression. We strongly believe in the power of representation, which has led us to create unique lipedema emojis.

The emojis are designed to represent one of the key symptoms of lipedema – a disproportionate body shape with enlarged legs*. Some emojis also wear JOBST® compression garments, highlighting an effective way to relieve symptoms.

*To confirm the diagnosis the legs must be painful and tender to the touch.
