Rob Kardashian’s already dropped 50 pounds on his journey to get healthy, and Registered Dietician Lisa DeFazio told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that his diabetes could be reversed if he continues to get fit!
Rob Kardashian, 29, could live a life without diabetes if he keeps up his weight loss routine! He’s lost 50 pounds by exercising and eating healthy, and Registered Dietician Lisa DeFazio, MS, RD, reveals to HollywoodLife.com that his diabetes could be reversed. But there’s a catch. Get the details now!
“Now that Rob has lost a significant amount of weight, at least 50 pounds, his diabetes may be reversed,” Lisa tells HollywoodLife.com. “However, if he gains the weight back, the diabetes will return. It’s important for him not to yo-yo with his weight, as this creates havoc on the body. It’s a lot of strain on your heart, kidneys, pancreas and liver. Your body’s insulin is like a key that opens up your cells to get the sugar into them after you eat. But with 50 or 100 extra pounds, your insulin can’t handle all of those cells so the sugar stays in the blood and that’s diabetes. When you have all that sugar in your blood it can affect your kidneys and your nerve endings.” To hear more about Rob Kardashian, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!
Over the past two years, Rob has been struggling with his weight. He was hospitalized in Dec. 2015 and diagnosed with diabetes. Rob’s family was so worried about him after his scary diagnosis. However, with the help of his girlfriend Blac Chyna, Rob has been steadily dropping weight. Lisa notes that Rob is really young to be diagnosed with diabetes, so it’s imperative that he continues to stay healthy and lose weight!
“Type 2 can be managed with diet alone and/or medication,” Lisa says. “Since Rob is so young to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, its imperative that it’s controlled otherwise it could get escalate and insulin shots would become necessary. Typically the average age of getting Type 2 diabetes is between 50-60 years old.”
