Khloe Kardashian is struggling to get through to her brother Rob Kardashian, as he battles Type 2 diabetes. But she’s come up with a new plan: showing him how far Lamar Odom’s come from his unfathomable health scare. Will it work?
Khloe Kardashian, 32, is attempting to get her brother, Rob Kardashian, 28, to lead a healthier lifestyle after he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, a disease with serious consequences without intervention. To get through to Rob, she’s not going to be rough on her little bro, according to an insider who spoke to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Instead, she’s going to tell him the inspiring story about Lamar Odom‘s downfall and continued recovery. If Lamar can come back from the brink of death, Rob can change his ways!
“Instead of putting Rob on blast and coming down incredibly hard on him and his issues, Khloe’s using a softer approach,” the insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She’s in his head and mentally trying to change the way he thinks about his life. She hates using comparisons but she had no choice but to [do so] in this situation.”
“She told Rob that if Lamar, who she thought was hours away from death, can bounce back and fight a good battle to relearn how to walk and talk again, then so could he,” the insider continued. “That really shook up Rob’s thinking. He loves Lamar, and to an extent idolizes him too. That alone made Rob stop feeling sad about himself.”
Good for Khloe! She loves her little brother, and doesn’t want his health to deteriorate. Type 2 diabetes is a serious illness in which the pancreas stops producing sufficient amounts of insulin, the hormone that regulates blood sugar. If Rob doesn’t revamp him unhealthy lifestyle, he will have to be on medication for the rest of his life. With a hard work, and becoming healthier, Rob may lessen his need for medication, or as some cases show, not have to take it.
Using Lamar as an example is such a good idea! Lamar went into the hospital on October 13 after a drug overdose, and suffered several strokes. He entered into a coma, and was nearly permanently incapacitated by the trauma. But despite his hardships — having to learn how to walk, talk and be himself again — he’s thriving.
