Kim Kardashian is one of the most well-known fashion figures around. The 41-year-old fashion icon loves making waves with her bold looks and fashion choices. Recently, Kim revealed that she shed 16 pounds to fit into Marilyn Monroe’s iconic dress, but it appears it came at a steep price.
The 41-year-old SKIMS founder, who usually eats a plant-based diet, revealed that because she had been consuming meat in her effort to quickly slim down. The drastic diet caused her body to have a psoriasis flare up that led to psoriatic arthritis.
Kim said in a new interview with Allure, “Psoriasis broke out over my body and I got psoriatic arthritis, so I couldn’t really move my hands,” She added, “I was freaking out.” Despite suffering from the painful condition, Kim recently defended her diet and remarked that she didn’t do ‘anything unhealthy’ as she compared her weight loss to that of Christian Bale’s extreme weight loss for his role in The Machinist.
The Kardashians star has been open in regard to her struggle with psoriasis, a skin disease thought to be an immune system problem. The disease causes skin cells to build up and form scales and itchy, dry patches. She previously opened up about the condition in depth on her sister Kourtney Kardashian’s website Poosh, in 2019, where she shared a variety of photos of her psoriasis flare-ups.
The mother-of-four first experienced the condition in her twenties, but it came back more strongly in her thirties. We’ll have to wait and see what she has in store for us next. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
