Rob Kardashian has been diagnosed with diabetic ketoacidosis, according to TMZ. The site reports:
Rob was taken to an L.A. hospital Sunday after feeling terrible all weekend.
Our sources say after a battery of tests, Rob was diagnosed with diabetic ketoacidosis, a serious complication of diabetes that occurs when someone’s body produces high levels of blood acids, or ketones. Rob had no idea he was diabetic, and it’s a good thing he took precautionary measures. If untreated, the condition can lead to a diabetic coma.
But there’s good news … our Kardashian sources say the doctors told Rob if he eats well and leads a “healthy lifestyle,” he can actually get his diabetes, which is type 2, under control and potentially have it go into remission.
A source tells E! News,
He’s home already. He went for a little and is fine now. It was a wake up call.
The outlet reports:
The insider adds that Rob’s tests revealed his blood sugar levels were very high, and doctors told him that he needs to lose weight, exercise and dramatically change his diet, or it will get worse.
