Reality star sad amidst News of Rob's diabetes diagnosis
Reality TV star Khloe Kardashian shared a melancholic-looking selfie yesterday night on her instagram page when the news of her brother Rob Kardashian’s diabetes diagnosis broke.
Khloe has been a big supporter of Rob over his struggle to deal with the realities of life in the constant spotlight. She allowed him into her house amid criticism from some of the other Kardashian sisters, and try to bring up his self-confidence.
Meanwhile, a source revealed to Hollywoodilfe that the popular Kardashian family generally sees this as a wake up call for him to take his health and life seriously.
“Now with this diabetes scare the family is hoping that he will get the help he needs,” the source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “But he is his own worst enemy and always seems to sabotage his health.” Hopefully they’re right and Rob will take his health seriously from now on, because this is a very serious issue.
TMZ reported that Rob Kardashian was diagnosed with diabetic ketoacidosis, a serious complication of diabetes that occurs when someone's body produces high levels of blood acids, or ketones.
But the good news for the Kardashian man is that the doctors have told him if he eats well and leads a "healthy lifestyle," he can actually get his diabetes, which is type 2, under control and potentially have it go into remission. Then, the family may possibly be right.
