Kim Kardashian Drops Diabetes Bombshell In Latest Episode Of Keeping Up With The Kardashians
Kim Kardashian has been pretty vocal about her rough experience with pregnancy, and in the juicy new promo for Season 11 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, she revealed that she might have gestational diabetes.
Kim and hubby Kanye West are expecting their second child in December, and during her pregnancy with their first child, the reality starlet suffered from preeclampsia, which causes high blood pressure and can threaten the lives of both mother and child.
“Once you have preeclampsia, you are at risk for having it again,” Kim’s doctor tells her in the promo clip. Kim then told her mother Kris Jenner and sister Kourtney, “They saw more fluid than usual in my placenta, which can mean I have diabetes.” It’s not confirmed that Kim actually has it, but after gestational diabetes, many women can go on to develop type 2 diabetes down the road, so it’s certainly not something to take lightly.
