Gigi Hadid has revealed her shocking secret health battle
She's calling out the trolls.
Gigi Hadid has taken aim at trolls on Twitter after being called "too skinny" at New York Fashion Week. The model tweeted out that she has been diagnosed with Hashimoto's Disease and it's reshaped her body.
She shared multiple tweets explaining exactly what she had been through in the last few years:
In case you don't know what it is, Hashimoto's disease is a condition where the immune system creates antibodies to destroy the thyroid gland, which produces the hormones that regulate our metabolism, muscle control, as well as heart and digestive function. The damage means that the thyroid can't produce enough of the hormones and it leads to weight gain and puffy face. There's no cure for the disease.
Gigi first opened up about the disease to Elle, saying how much her body changed:
“My metabolism actually changed like crazy this year. I have Hashimoto's disease. It's a thyroid disease, and it's now been two years since taking the medication for it, so for the VS show I didn't want to lose any more weight, I just want to have muscles in the right place, and if my butt can get a little perkier, then that's good."
