215 – Lipodystrophy: It’s Not a Fad Diet

Ever heard of Lipodystrophy? If the answer is no, we aren’t surprised. It is a VERY rare disorder. Lipodystrophy refers to a medical problem where there is an abnormal distribution of fat in the body. Doesn’t sound like a huge deal, but trust, it’s no walk in the park. As our guest this week, Sonia, puts it “You’re about to open pandora’s box”. We learn how this bizarre disorder comes with a ton of comorbidities – liver failure, heart failure and beyond. A disorder so intense that it took both Sonia’s mother and sister’s life. Sonia is still kicking though and killing it!
