Lipedema and Dercum’s disease (DD) are incompletely characterized adipose tissue diseases, and objective measures of disease profiles are needed to aid in differential diagnosis. We hypothesized that fluid properties, quantified as tissue water bioimpedance in the upper and lower extremities, differ regionally between these conditions. Bioimpedance spectroscopy is a noninvasive portable modality to assess tissue …
