Aegerion Pharmaceuticals is a committed to caring for individuals with Generalized Lypodystrophy, a rare sub-type of lipodystrophy characterized by the loss of fat tissue all over the body, in turn causing lack of leptin and metabolic complications. The absence of fat is quite visible and a person with GL appears very thin and often muscular. People living with GL have low leptin levels that lead to excessive hunger and inability to process food properly.

Many medical advancements have been made in recent years and treatments are available.

This campaign was made possible with the support of Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, a leader in drug development taking an active role in raising awareness for Generalized Lipodystrophy.
