Wendy Williams says her life has “completely changed” since her Graves’ disease started “creeping back” last year.
In a video message at the Graves’ Disease & Thyroid Foundation 2018 Patients and Family Conference, the veteran talk show host opened up about how she had been managing her health since her diagnosis 19 years ago.
But, after she was prescribed the wrong medication it returned and shook up her entire life.
Everything was fine. I had the radioactive iodine [medication], taking my pill a day, minding my own business.
Then back in the fall or maybe around July of last year, I started feeling weird in the head but I’m thinking, ‘OK, this is maybe a casualty of menopause or we were ramping up for season nine of the ‘Wendy Show.’
So, it wasn’t until I passed out on my own show [in October] that … Anyway, life has completely changed.
Wendy went on to reveal that Graves’ Disease sometimes impacts her balance, so she had been forced to let her heels go.
The doctors tell me it’s going to take at least six months — maybe a year — to level off my medication, which is why I always wear flats.
I’m not wearing heels and falling and tripping.
Hopefully, Wendy will get back to her normal self very soon.
