Celebrities You Didn’t Know Are Battling Medical Conditions
Actress Gina Rodriguez is a fighter. Figuratively and literally, as her boxing coach father taught her the sport as a child, and it’s an activity she still enjoys. Rodriguez is well-known for her portrayal of the title character on televisions Jane the Virgin, and in real life, she oozes self-confidence. But she wasn’t always that way. Diagnosed with hypothyroidism as a teenager and Hashimoto’s a few years later, she’s long struggled with excess weight and an overarching feeling of fatigue. These days, she pays close attention to her body. She manages her thyroid conditions with medication and a much healthier diet, and finds that regular exercise keeps her feeling great.
