Kim Kardashian reveals her shocking struggle with health

3 min read

Kim Kardashian has been open about her fight against her autoimmune disease psoriasis. But never before did she go into great detail about the painful effects of the disease and now also reveal on Poosh, her sister Kourtney’s blog, that she suffers from psoriatic arthritis, a combination of inflammatory rheumatism and skin disease.

“It’s still painful and scary, but I was glad I had a diagnosis”

Kim was 25 years old when she first suffered from psoriasis. She got red spots on her legs and belly. After a visit to the dermatologist, the symptoms stayed away for five years. When she was in her early thirties, it returned and her real fight against skin disease began.

Over the past eight years, spots appear on her body occasionally. “At the beginning of this year it became very serious. It covered my entire face and most of my body,” the reality star says. “I remember how I had to fly to Vegas on the Jimmy Kimmel show. I felt so uncomfortable all the time because my hands hurt so much. I felt terrible.”

After the show, she went to the doctor. Finally she found out she had psoriatic arthritis. “It is still painful and scary, but I was glad I had a diagnosis.” A few months later she noticed that the arthritis was not in her hands alone. One day she was unable to take off her pants. “I couldn’t even put my bra on that day. Someone had to dress me because the pain was unbearable.” Kim is now trying to fight the disease with a healthy diet and lifestyle. “If you have psoriasis, you must not let it ruin your life. You must do what it takes to feel good, but it must not take over.”
