She Was Diagnosed With PCOS
According to People, Rexha opened up about her ongoing battle with weight following her diagnosis of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), shedding light on the challenges she faced in managing her health. In a candid interview on Gayle King’s SiriusXM show “Gayle King in the House,” the pop star shared her journey, highlighting the impact of PCOS on her body and mental well-being.
PCOS is a hormonal disorder that affects many women worldwide, causing a range of symptoms, including weight gain and difficulty losing weight. Rexha’s revelation adds a new layer of understanding to her recent defiance against body-shaming trolls and reinforces her commitment to promoting body positivity.
“I definitely struggle with my weight, and I struggle with the way that I look, and it’s been tough for me. I just found out recently that I have PCOS, and a lot of women have it. And a lot of women have it and don’t know,” Rexha said, adding that weight gain is a common symptom she’s dealt with. “It’s tough. I think for me, I’ve been definitely struggling with my weight, and I’ve been struggling with food forever.”
She continued, “I remember starting out and getting my first record deal, they kind of put it in my head, and they said to me when I first got signed, ‘Are you ready to get into boot camp shape? Because you need to lose 20 lbs. to do this career. Like you have to lose weight.'”
