7 Celebrities with Health Conditions

Featured image for 7 Celebrities with Health Conditions

Celebrities are perfect. They have no flaws. They are always at their best, even upon waking up.

Stupid as those statements may sound, they do come up in the minds of Jane and Joe Average, if only because of what is portrayed by the media. Now and then, we do come upon pieces showing just how human celebrities are. Humans like you and me.

This is not to downplay the health condition of any celebrity in this list. Neither is it to make fun of them, but if you feel a slight sense of schadenfreude, no one will make any judgements for sure. So here are some celebrities with health conditions, if it makes you feel any better that they are human after all.

Kim Kardashian

Shannen Doherty has a more difficult condition than Kim. She has Crohn’s Disease, which means really painful abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Fever and fatigue are part of it, too. Maybe that’s why she got the reputation of being a bitch. Wouldn’t you bitch, too, if you suddenly felt your stomach cramping like hell in the middle of a shoot?

So Alice Cooper suffers from asthma. Who doesn’t? If you have serious asthma attacks, though, you would know that this is no joking matter. I wonder how he managed his rock and roll lifestyle?

Halle Berry

Not only does she have a beautiful name, Halle Berry is as gorgeous as heck. But she does have one health issue: diabetes. One wouldn’t think that seeing how perfectly she keeps her body! She was diagnosed with the condition when she was 22 and since then, she has maintained a healthy lifestyle to control the problem.

It is no secret how the singer struggles with her weight, and maybe it is also due to the condition she suffers from: Graves’ Disease. This condition affects the autoimmune system and thyroid, resulting in loss in physical control at times.

Seal

Seal’s life has recently been under scrutiny due to his breakup with wife Heidi Klum, but did you know he suffers from lupus? This chronic autoimmune disease attacks the body’s cells and can make one’s life really horrible. More horrible than a divorce, probably.

David Beckham

David Beckham Has Ataxophobia

Wait a minute! This guy can’t be suffering from any illness, can he? He is PERFECT! Well, maybe he is perfect because of his condition, which is technically a phobia: ataxophobia. This is the irrational fear of disorder. Maybe that’s why he looks so perfect.
