Treating Her ‘Angry Fat’ and Diastolic Heart Murmur | Lipoedema and Me

One in every ten women are affected, no amount of dieting can help and most don’t know it exists… In this episode we talk to a patient diagnosed with Lipoedema and take a listen to her fascinating heart murmur at both rest and during exercise.

LIPOEDEMA

Lipoedema is a condition that mainly affects women and is characterised by symmetrical swelling in the legs, thighs, buttocks and sometimes arms. It is due to the way fat is deposited under the skin in an uneven manner instead of in a regular pattern. It can be extremely painful and the areas that are affected have a tendency to bruise easily. Lipoedema can result in fluid retention in the affected areas leading to a condition known as lymphoedema. It is thought to have a genetic basis, however, the cause of the condition is not yet fully understood.

As we hear in this interview, lipoedema can have a number of effects on the body from having a limited ability to do physical exercise to other medical conditions. As you’ll hear, our patient was incidentally found to have a murmur caused by diastolic dysfunction which is where the heart has trouble relaxing between beats. This means that with each contraction, less blood is pumped from the left ventricle and so the heart has to work harder to make up for this shortfall. This, if not monitored regularly, can lead to conditions such as high blood pressure and even heart failure. We take a listen to the murmur over both the aortic and pulmonary valve during rest and exercise and it’s truly amazing.

Treatment of lipoedema is multi-dimensional and involves psychological support, healthy eating and exercise, skin care, compression therapy and management of pain amongst others. It is often managed through a multidisciplinary team of doctors and therapists.

If you or someone is affected with lipoedema please see your General Practitioner for further assessment and management. There are also a number of useful support groups available.

The Heart Sounds of a Female | Before, During & After Exercise | ASMR ❤️

In this episode we take a listen to the female heart before, during and after exercise with no added commentary.

As you’ll notice, listening to the heart at rest, the beats are crisp and clear. During and after exercise, you may hear some lung sounds which can alter the clarity of the heart beat sound. Listen to how the heart relaxes to its resting state after exercise and the heart beat becomes clearer again - truly beautiful.

Be sure to stay tuned for my next set of videos where we will be listening to the male heart beat before, during and after exercise and a live female patient with a heart murmur. I am also excited to share with you that I’ll be reviewing another electronic stethoscope very soon.
