Celebrities You Didn’t Know Are Battling Medical Conditions
Spend some time perusing top workout DVDs and you will see Jillian Michaels everywhere. The tough trainer, well-known for no-nonsense approach to helping contestants lose weight on The Biggest Loser, stars in dozens of fitness DVDs and has even written several books on fitness, cooking, and overall health. Jillian keeps herself in expert condition, but it doesn’t always come easy; that’s because she suffers from both endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome. Endometriosis causes the lining of the uterus to grow in unexpected, often painful places, and can lead to fertility problems. PCOS, meanwhile, is a hormonal condition that can also affect a woman’s fertility. Michaels does not let either condition slow her down, though, and is a happy mother to two children (one birthed by her partner, the other adopted).
