However, an estimated 17 million women in the U.S. and 370 million worldwide have the hereditary genetic fat disorder, lipedema/lipoedema, without knowing it. Anti-fat bias proliferates our healthcare system and this disorder is unknown and mis-diagnosed.
This documentary follows the challenges of diagnosis, surgery and recovery while women with the disorder, physicians, and researchers try to come to grips with the disease.
