A few months ago, the ex-wife of Andrei Arshavin, Alisa, showed on the Web how her face has changed. But then no one knew that she was seriously ill, so the subscribers decided that she had plastic surgery.
Recently, Alice frankly told what horror she experienced. It turned out that her face is literally collapsing due to autoimmune necrosis. “The disease cut through the jaw, cheekbones, lips, nasolabial and everything inside. The doctors cut out everything they could. There were literally millimeters left to the brain,”she said. Later, Arshavina first showed her face that had changed due to operations.
Olympic medalist, European and world figure skating champion Irina Slutskaya became a guest of the show by TV presenter Lera Kudryavtseva. The skater talked about the most difficult and joyful moments in life and how her life depends on drugs. Irina Slutskaya, at the age of 24, was diagnosed with a terrible diagnosis - vasculitis, pathological vascular inflammation.
“One day I woke up and I had a huge horn on my forehead. He was blown away after 15 minutes, but there was a bruise in his place,”
- Irina remembered.
Later, similar bumps with bruises began to appear all over the body.
"This was really scary. Later, doctors determined that it was vasculitis. And he is treated only with hormonal drugs, which must be drunk all his life ",
- said the athlete.
Irina began to take hormones - several pills a day. They caused a terrible appetite, which is destructive for an athlete:
“I limited myself in everything, as I immediately got better. I remember cooking for my husband, but my tears were pouring into the frying pan from hunger."
Irina really wanted to compete, so she kept herself in control, even though it was very difficult.
Treatment with hormones gave a side effect - now Slutskaya has chronic asthma:
"She is in remission, but sometimes she makes herself felt, I have to constantly take medicine, there is no other way out, my life depends on pills."
Fortunately, despite all the diagnoses, Irina became a mother for the third time at the end of last year.
Miroslava Duma, co-founder of the Buro 24/7 fashion publication, said that she was diagnosed with a rare lung disease:
“Earlier this year, I was diagnosed with a rare lung disease and given 7 months to live. It was insanely scary then, but looking back, I realize that the last few months of recovery were perhaps the happiest months of my life. I stopped running marathons and realized how much I love life, how beautiful our world is and how much I want to stay here. With the people I love. Today, success is measured not by external indicators, but by what is inside. It is measured by my own health and the health of those I love."
The disease was discovered at an early stage, so Miroslava began to undergo intensive treatment and now feels much better. The terrible diagnosis made the entrepreneur reconsider many aspects of her own life, which she reported shortly before the New Year: “What a year! Testing, Inner Transformation and Medicine! My last impetus to full recovery is to connect with the real world, surrounded by people whom I love here and now."
Selena Gomez had to take a break from work due to complications from lupus - depression and panic attacks. For the first time, the media learned about Gomez's disease in 2013, she herself confirmed these rumors only two years later.The singer underwent several courses of chemotherapy, which greatly affected her health and general condition. Systemic lupus erythematosus is a serious disease in which the human immune system perceives its own cells as foreign and begins to fight them. The body produces substances that damage many organs and tissues: blood vessels, skin, joints, internal organs. Gomez underwent kidney transplant surgery two years ago. Selena's donor was her friend, actress Francia Rice.
Lady Gaga also stated that she has lupus. The singer posted a photo from the hospital ward on her Instagram. “Today is a tough day for me due to chronic pain, but I am sincerely grateful for the help of wonderful female doctors. I also think about Joan, how strong she was, and I start to feel better,”she said. Joan is the singer's aunt who died of lupus at the age of 19; the star named her album Joanne in her honor.
“Each of us has his own case and, of course, the first thing to do is to consult a doctor. However, I can give you some advice. When severe cramps begin in my body, an infrared sauna helps me a lot. I have invested in one of the companies that deals with this issue. Some of the saunas are in the shape of a large box, some are like a horizontal solarium, and there are also saunas in the form of thermo blankets. I combine this method with the use of a silver rescue blanket - it is cheap, reusable and, moreover, helps to detox the body, get rid of extra pounds. In order not to overheat and cause inflammation, I always take a very cold bath or an ice bath after that (if you can handle it, it's worth it), or I apply frozen food from the refrigerator to sore spots. Hope this helps some of you! ",
- Gaga shared her experience.
Tatyana Lazareva admitted that she suffers from ulcerative colitis, which is considered an incurable disease. With this ailment, a person suffers from abdominal pain, diarrhea, anemia, weight and appetite loss, weakness, skin problems and more.
“I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2014. Now I understand that there is no need to be ashamed of this disease. The problem will not disappear anywhere if you pretend that it does not exist. When a person is diagnosed with a diagnosis that neither he nor his entourage have ever heard of, it may seem that no one else is sick, and he is alone in the whole world. It is very difficult emotionally. That is why I decided to talk about my illness publicly: let other patients know that they are not alone with their misfortune,”
- said the TV presenter.
More and more stars have recently been suffering from Lyme disease, an infectious disease transmitted by ticks and affecting the skin, nervous system, musculoskeletal system and heart. Singer Avril Lavigne and actress Ashley Olsen, as well as one of the most successful young models Bella Hadid, confirmed their diagnosis. At the 2017 Global Lyme Alliance Gala, Bella's mom, TV star Yolanda Foster, talked about it publicly and promised to find a cure for her children - her son Anwar is also sick.
“I will not let them live a life of pain and suffering. I will circumnavigate the globe, but I can find a treatment so that they can live the healthy life they deserve. No child in the world should experience this. I thank you both Bella and Anwar for your dedication. Your unwavering love and compassion supported me during the darkest days of my life."
- she declared from the stage.
Sinead O'Connor said that she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, characterized by chronic pain throughout the body, fatigue, and sleep disturbance.
“The disease has turned me into a shadow. Killed my soul. I will never return to music ",
- said the famous singer.
Zoe Saldana revealed that she was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease.It is a chronic inflammatory disease of the thyroid gland, which begins to produce inadequate amounts of hormones. A rare disease affects about five percent of the world's population, and women more often than men.
“Suddenly the doctor reports that your bones are losing calcium. What the hell? I thought. Yes, I heard my mother and grandmother complain about their health, but I didn't think it would affect me. It seemed to me that I would live forever, and suddenly you find yourself face to face with the disease ",
- shared in an interview with Saldana.
