Rob Kardashian is facing a medical crisis that have some fearing for his life. The only brother of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians clan not only has diabetes, but Rob also has problems with his pancreas and kidneys, an insider told Radar Online.
“His pancreas is basically not functioning,” explained the Kardashian insider. “He also has kidney problems. He’s very, very sick.”
Rob, 28, was taken to the hospital amid protests because he suffered from breathing problems coupled with excessive sweating and irregular breathing. The Kardashian family forced him to go into medical treatment because of those symptoms.
Gaining an estimated 100 pounds, Rob has become a recluse for the past few years, staying hidden in Khloe Kardashian’s home. But how serious is the health crisis that Kardashian now faces?
Inside Rob Kardashian’s Health Battle
Rob received a diagnosis of type 2 diabetic ketoacidosis, according to Rolling Out.
When he was taken to the hospital, doctors found that he had a dangerously high blood sugar measurement, and Kardashian was on the verge of a diabetic coma.
But it’s not all bad news for Rob. Kardashian is now home from the hospital, with reports that he has the opportunity to transform his health with certain steps, according to MSN.
The physicians monitoring Rob’s health say that he can improve as he eats right and also follows what is described as a “healthy lifestyle.”
With that awareness of Kardashian’s medical crisis, where are the rest of the Jenner and Kardashian family? They can’t reach Rob because he’s avoiding the KUWTK clan, according to She Knows, which cites an insider as saying that the former reality TV star is shunning family members.
“Rob does not want to see anyone and he has made that very clear to the whole family,” revealed that insider. “He is not answering calls or returning anyone’s text messages.”
Can KUWTK Clan Persuade Rob To Enter Rehab?
Only Khloe can visit him, but the entire Kardashian family has tried to plead with Kardashian to go to rehab, either a drug problem or physical rehab facility. Rob reportedly has both physical problems and “mental health issues,” added the insider.
“The kid needs help and if he does not get the help he will not be around to see 2017,” claimed the source.
So are his sisters Kourtney, Khloe, and Kim Kardashian, as well as Kylie and Kendall Jenner and momager Kris Jenner, planning an intervention and grouping around Rob? Not according to the recent reports about the Keeping Up with the Kardashian women, who instead appear to be focused on tending to the men in their lives.
For example, thanks to Harry Styles, Kendall is busy with renewing a former romance, according to Us Weekly.
They got away from it all on a vacation in Anguilla in the Eastern Caribbean, and a source told Us Weekly that her supermodel career lured Harry back.
“Her appearance in the [Victoria’s Secret] fashion show is what drew him back to her,” revealed the source. “All of his friends were saying how hot and amazing she looked.”
Rob’s Mom & Sisters Focus On Men In Their Lives Instead Of Him
As for momager Kris and sister Khloe, they’re both involved with their own romances as well, according to Celeb Dirty Laundry.
Kris was enjoying party time in St. Bart’s with boyfriend Corey Gamble, while Khloe was having flirty fun in Texas with James Harden amid Rob’s health crisis. Kris did return subsequently, but Khloe reportedly has sought to focus on James despite rumors that the two had split.
Kourtney Kardashian, meanwhile, is ignoring Rob for Scott Disick, who she dumped, but because he’s the father of their three children, can’t be ignored. And while Disick partied for the New Year, Kourtney sought to get help from Kim Kardashian, reported the Mirror.
The sisters saw in the New Year together, noticeably minus Scott.
As the Inquisitr reported, Disick and Kourtney battled over his New Year’s Eve plans to host a big party in Las Vegas. With Scott reportedly trying to stay sober after yet another rehab stay, Kardashian was concerned that he was setting himself up to binge on booze yet again. Meanwhile, Kourtney herself has found time for some cuddly fun by getting involved in a hot hook-up with Justin Bieber.
So that leaves Kim Kardashian to come to the rescue of her brother Rob. Just one problem with that plan. Kim is busy focusing on husband Kanye West, who released a new track, reported E! News.
“Yeezy Yeezy Yeezy new song about to drop #facts,” tweeted Kim proudly.
What do you think about Rob Kardashian and his medical crisis? Is he shunning his family because he wants to be proactive and fears that if he doesn’t take the first step, they’ll ignore him anyway? Or are the Keeping Up with the Kardashians clan genuinely concerned about Rob and feeling helpless if he won’t follow their advice to go into treatment? Post your views below.
