Celebrities You Didn’t Know Are Battling Medical Conditions
Sam Faiers is probably better known in England than in America, where she is a model and television star. But when she started losing weight and suffering from a number of other unexplained health problems, she sought medical attention — and answers. Eventually, Faiers was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, a chronic condition that involves inflammation in the digestive system. Currently, Faiers manages her condition with diet and nutritional supplements, although she’s careful to caution that what works for her may not work for everyone, and that she’s taken medication to treat it in the past. The star is optimistic about her future, and having the disease under control gives her more time to focus on her young son.
