Ola Winqvist is an Immunologist at the Karolinska Institute and he is very interested in Dercum's disease (DD). He would like to understand the immune dysfunction underlying DD. He has already evaluated people with Type 2 DD and is looking for people with Type 3 DD. People with Type 3 DD tend to be less obese, and have larger lipomas that are painful especially on the arms, thighs, low back and abdomen. Women also have the lipomas in their breasts and men can have them on their chests. Dr. Winqvist has scheduled a meeting that is open to anyone with DD (Types 1-3).
Where? Karolinska Institute, Gustav V building.
When: Friday May 11th from 13.00-16.00.
There will be a reporter there as well as at least one other medical doctor interested in DD. Please try and attend. This event will not only advance our medical knowledge of DD but also promote awareness through a newspaper article.

Hello Dr Herbst,

I have symptoms and my son also has some of the symptoms. He is skinny, I have gotten larger. Doctors just tell me I am fat and to loose weight. I wish I could find a doctor in my area who understands any of this!
