Since Rob Kardashian has been diagnosed with diabetes, he has been in seclusion, ordering food, and not leaving his bedroom. Recently, he was hospitalized only to find out that he has diabetes and complications with his pancreas and kidneys. Kardashian was told to change his diet, lose weight, and start exercising, but he has chosen not to do any of these things, and his family is concerned that he is eating himself to death.
According to the Inquisitr, Kris Jenner of KUWTK is offering Rob $1 million to seek help, but only if he will do it on the show for the family to exploit him. Jenner believes that Rob Kardashian’s storyline would bring in a lot of viewers. For now, Rob Kardashian is ignoring this offer, and keeping to himself.

Radar Online is reporting that Rob Kardashian now has carryout delivered directly to his bedroom door, where he now does all of his eating. He was living in a room at Khloe Kardashian’s house, and wouldn’t come out of his room, as if he were a 12-year-old boy.
“He’s been eating everything fattening and unhealthy in sight ‑ burgers, fries, pizza, fried chicken, potato skins, burritos, enchiladas and chips,” an insider said.
The family is concerned about his diabetes and his mental health.

According to another article in Radar Online, Kris Jenner is considering placing Rob Kardashian on a psych hold due to concerns that he is a danger to himself.
“Kris has said she would potentially try to implement a 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold on Rob, because some of the Kardashians feel that his life could be in danger right now,” a source close to the family said.
A 5150 hold would let professionals evaluate Rob against his will. For now, Rob Kardashian has refused his mother’s offer of money to get help.
“He has refused Kris’s offer of $1 million to get the help he needs,” the source told Radar. “He has also refused to let her give him a team of psychologists and therapists.”
Previously, Khloe Kardashian was able to talk to her brother, but now he has cut her off too.
“What is even worse is that he is no longer even opening up to Khloe anymore,” the insider added.

Entertainment Tonight says that Rob Kardashian has had dangerous weight gain over the last year, and it is putting his life at risk.
“He’s very overweight and hasn’t been working out,” the source says. “The diabetes diagnoses comes as no surprise. He has been warned about this for years, and never did anything to prevent it.”
Kardashian’s sisters and mother are glad that this diagnosis is severe, as it might finally shock him into doing something.
“The family is worried about him, but at the same time, they’re glad this wake-up call has come,” the source adds. “It could have been something a lot worse that happened to him, and they’re hoping he finally gets better with new medication.”
As a result of all of the pressure, Kardashian has moved out of Khloe’s house without warning, and into a condo.
“This is a good thing,” the source comments about the move. “He needs to be on his own instead of around his sisters all day and night.”
In her memoir, Khloe Kardashian wrote that part of Rob’s problem was that everyone did things for him, when he should have done things for himself.
“I was constantly checking up on him, making sure he had the food he liked, seeing if he needed anything from the store, asking what I could do to make him more comfortable,” Khloe wrote. “My sisters said I was babying him and that he’d never leave the house if I didn’t let him fend for himself. I argued with them because it was an emotional issue, and emotion tends to cloud your thinking.”
Do you think Rob Kardashian will seek help, or will it take another emergency?
