No assessment or estimate has been made by NHS England of the total costs of treating lipodystrophy, as there are many different types and causes of lipodystrophy, including inherited cases or those caused by HIV treatments.

NHS England commissions the National Severe Insulin Resistance Service to provide a multidisciplinary NHS service for patients with severe insulin resistance and/or lipodystrophy from across England. The service supports both adult and paediatric patients and is available to assess, help diagnose, and treat patients with generalised or partial lipodystrophy.
