The Specific Disorders We Study
Excess and abnormal SAT typically found on the buttocks, hips, thighs, and lower legs but also on the arms in 80%.
Lumpy fibrotic subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) occurring anywhere on the body accompanied by symptoms of extreme pain, inflammation, and elevated inflammatory markers. Signs and symptoms of Dercum's Disease are similar to Fibromyalgia. Angiolipomas are common in Dercum's disease.
Familial Multiple Lipomatosis with or without Angiolipomatosis
When large lipomas develop in fat tissue they deform the tissue. Angiolipomas (vascular lipomas) are known to be painful and when accompanied by signs and symptoms such as fatigue, cognitive changes, sleep difficulties, gastrointestinal disorders and other signs and symptoms, is called Dercum's Disease.
Multiple Symmetric Lipomatosis
Abnormal tissue deposits that occur around the neck, upper arms, thighs, abdomen, and upper buttocks. Associated with alcohol use but may occur in the absence of alcohol use.

Learning about SAT disorders could help us better understand the fat in obesity and diabetes.
