Bethenny Frankel talks about her health issues

Los Angeles- The Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel’s health issues have compounded even more, with a new diagnosis for the reality star. The 48-year-old reality star took to Twitter to reveal she was diagnosed with leaky gut syndrome, reports People.com.

“Just when you thought it couldn’t get sexier, I was diagnosed today with “leaky gut syndrome” and a wheat allergy. Could there be a more vile title? That I wouldn’t have put on my dating profile. Ok tweeps, hit me with the info (sic),” Bethenny tweeted.

According to Harvard Health Publishing, leaky gut syndrome occurs when the gut lining contains “large cracks or holes” that allow “partially digested food, toxins, and bugs to penetrate the tissues beneath it.” The news is an unwelcome burden for the Skinnygirl founder, who had a near-fatal allergic reaction to fish after consuming miso soup in December that caused her to become unconscious and required emergency treatment.
