Oh no! ‘Teen Mom 3’ star Mackenzie Douthit McKee is having a scary medical crisis! The reality star was rushed to the hospital after she suffered complications from diabetes and her blood sugar went sky-high.
Yikes! Mackenzie McKee‘s ongoing battle with diabetes has landed her in the hospital after she became violently ill Jan. 13. The Teen Mom 3 and 16 & Pregnant star has had problems in the past controlling her blood sugar levels and it appears she had yet another episode that caused her to have a medical emergency. Read on for more details about her health crisis.
Sources close to Kenzie tell TMZ, “Her mom and husband Josh rushed her to a hospital Wednesday night near their home in Miami, Oklahoma. We’re told she was violently throwing up all night.” The site reports that she discovered her blood sugar was “dangerously high” after testing with a home kit. Her family decided she needed to get to a hospital around 10 pm and that she’s still there while doctors are trying to stabilize the reality star’s blood sugar levels. How scary!
The site notes that the mother of two has been training and dieting to compete in her next figure competition and that could have been a factor. The super fit reality star suffers from Type 1 Diabetes, and the condition forced her to have a c-section early after her blood sugar levels continued to drop when daughter Jaxie was born on Feb. 7 2014. She also got in a terrifying car accident in March 2014 when she zoned out from sky-high blood sugar levels when driving on an Oklahoma highway, totalling her 2013 Kia Sorrento but luckily she escaped that without serious injuries.
