Kim Kardashian West Tests Positive For Lupus

It was an emotional premiere of season 17 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, especially for Kim Kardashian West.

The 38-year-old reality star revealed she had been suffering some worrying symptoms and had to seek professional help from her doctor.

Kardashian West thought her symptoms might mean she had rheumatoid arthritis.

“I’ve been feeling so tired, so nauseous and my hands are really getting swollen,” she said. “I feel like I literally am falling apart. My hands are numb.”

However, her doctor called her with news that her blood tests revealed antibodies associated with lupus and rheumatoid arthritis leaving her in tears and “freaking out.”

It’s too early to know for certain as her doctor revealed that it could possibly be a false positive result and that follow-up testing is needed. It’s presumed that fans of the beauty mogul will find out the final diagnosis on a future episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
