Bethany Davis was on a trip to Disney at age 11 when she first realized she couldn’t feel her ankle bones. A primary lymphedema diagnosis followed along with a lifelong quest to manage this chronic condition. From feeling shame about her condition to choosing NOT to manage it for a period, Bethany’s candor is refreshing. Embracing a ketogenic diet was life-changing for Bethany. She lost over twelve pounds of fluid in her legs and in just three months a total of 30 pounds. She says “sugar was poisoning my lymphatic system.” She encourages viewers to fight for themselves and obtain the best medical supplies available to manage their lymphedema as well as to connect with one or more of the many online support groups that are available. Her story is an inspiration to anyone with a lymphedema diagnosis.
