Kim Kardashian has made no secret of the fact that she hasn’t enjoyed being pregnant, but the reality star hinted in the promo for Season 11 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians on Sunday, Oct. 11, that she could be diagnosed with diabetes as she carries her second child
The 34-year-old, who is expecting a son in December with husband Kanye West, 38, suffered from potentially deadly preeclampsia when she was pregnant with daughter North West in 2013, and on a
routine doctor’s checkup, she learned that she could be in even more trouble this time around.
“Once you have preeclampsia, you are at risk for having it again,” Kardashian’s doctor warned her in a scene from the upcoming season of the reality show.
Then Kardashian told her mother, Kris Jenner, and big sister, Kourtney Kardashian, “They saw more fluid than usual in my placenta, which can mean I have diabetes.”
The shock was clear on Jenner’s face.
If she does have the condition, Kim will need to carefully keep track of her blood sugar levels for the remainder of her pregnancy to make sure that she and her baby remain healthy and that the extra glucose in her blood stream doesn’t cause her baby to grow too large or force her to deliver before her due date.
The condition could also raise her risk of preeclampsia, which causes high blood pressure and, according to the Mayo Clinic, can threaten the lives of both mother and baby.
