I have another one that will be surgically removed pretty soon -

Lipomas are benign fatty tissue tumors - can show up anywhere, and usually get removed if causing any bothersome symptoms.

Do a search here. I know I've heard many comments on them over the years.

I'm sorry you are getting them!

Thx, Lymetoo and TC. Wow, TC, they came back. Yikes. I'll ask the derm dr to see if they think they can get it all.

Dr Herbst, endocrinologist, suggested that people try taking noni juice and grape seed extract to shrink lipomas. This protocol actually worked for the other earlier ones I had - shrunk them to nothing. Then I tested not taking the supplements and the lipomas returned. It was actually fun having some control over it.

Lipomas-in dogs can shrink if the dog is put on a grain free (esp corn free), non-gmo diet. Animals that are fed gmo corn for feed (beef cattle, chickens etc) can contribute to lipoma formation.

Also, lipomas have been associated with a history of strep. Avoid eggs, corn, dairy, pork, canola oil, soy, grains. Cut back on animal products. All of that stuff feeds strep and viruses.

I have them all over my body really badly every inch it seems. My arms are embarassing now. I had some removed years ago they grow back. I might try the noni juice and grape seed extract I guess.

You are welcome Robin3895673843.

I was told they "got it all", no problem. They were all wrong. I think their intentions were good, but the lipomas just came back.

Very interesting, Lookup.

I had it removed today and asked the docs if they were aware of what causes them. Answer was no, that they're common, and just remove them if they get bothersome.

Nursejed1, I learned about drinking noni juice and taking grape seed extract capsules from the dercums group. It's a group that has the multiple lipomas all over the body, like you're describing. So yes, you could try the protocol. It's easy to do. And let us know if it makes any difference. I shrank mine to nothing, then stopped the protocol and they came back. Very clear impact.

TC, the docs today said they can do their best but short of the lipoma being encapsulated, they don't know if they got it all. We had a brief conversation about whether ultrasound could detect them. If so, that could be a useful tool.
