book | Lipoedema - I am more than my legs
Even as a young girl, Isabel García suspected that something was wrong with her body, as she gained a lot of weight in her legs during puberty and suffered from pain. However, she was not diagnosed with lipoedema until she was 27 years old, after an odyssey through all kinds of diets, sports and from one helpless doctor to the next. This book is the result of her persistent search for answers, the right therapies and support in everyday life with this mysterious and difficult to treat disease. Ms. García wants to offer women with lipoedema help to help themselves, educate them about the disease and dispel myths. Above all, she wants to show that nobody has to hide because of their lipoedema.
The perfect book for a comprehensive introduction to life with a diagnosis of lipedema and, above all, a wonderful encouragement. Great personal recommendation!
