Now is YOUR time.

Feel healthy & live your best life.

You will have access to a team of specialists in lipedema, lymphedema, lymphatic and fat disorders. You are unique and need a personalized approach. 

With our combined decades of education and experience, you will be guided in transforming the symptoms you struggle with. You will feel better day-to-day and live your best life.

You will receive support, understanding, and a world of shared experiences that is life-transforming.

So many of us with lipedema struggle alone with doctors and family who don't understand about lipedema, or even worse, don't believe us. 

Our TRIBE Community creates a safe space to learn, to find what's right for you and your body. You can manage lipedema and live your best life. 

You are not alone!

How often in your life have you needed help for having fat arms, hips, legs, about your body but don't know what to do?

What about times that you have been in so much pain... and not known where to go or who to turn to?

The gap between your current health journey and the best quality of life with lipedema cannot be filled by knowledge alone.

We created the Lipedema TRIBE Community so you can enrich your life, learn about these chronic conditions, and connect with others to offer and receive support.

Simply, we have your back!

"To me, TRIBE is an education platform for lipedema and lymphedema. It is so helpful to know there are other ladies who may also have these symptoms and listen to their experiences. TRIBE is also a support for our feelings and to know we are not the only person to feel as we do. I am grateful to be part of this wonderful organization and to be invited to attend the many offerings held each week and month. If I can not attend at the time a meeting is held there are always reruns!"

"This disease is not for the faint hearted. It takes persistence to do the things we need to do to manage this condition. Sharing my story, offering help to others and having a place to ask questions can make a big difference in living with lipedema."

~ Jeanne
Colorado, USA

"TRIBE means so much to me. I found I was not alone, and others had some of the same issues that I had. We support and learn from each other.
Because of the TRIBE, I made it through COVID! I was very isolated from my family and friends.
I love our schmooze time before and after Miranda. We talk, laugh and learn. TRIBE is my safe place to talk freely."
