Kim Kardashian revela que padece de lupus / Kim Kardashian West tested positive for Lupus antibodies

La estrella de televisión Kim Kardashian se «derrumbó al conocer que dio positivo en lupus» tras practicarse un test de anticuerpos, un momento que fue retransmitido en el estreno de la nueva temporada de su reality show.

Kardashian había revelado anteriormente que desde hace un tiempo sufría varios síntomas relacionados con la artritis, unos de las consecuencias más comunes de la enfermedad causada por el lupus.

«Me he sentido cansada, con náuseas y mis manos realmente se están hinchando. Siento que literalmente me estoy desmoronando», dijo la estrella televisiva y magnate empresarial durante su programa de televisión «Keepin’ Up With The Kardashians».

Acompañada por su hermana Kylie Jenner, la estrella admitió que estaba experimentado hinchazón en las articulaciones, dolores de cabeza y fatiga general antes de la llegada de su cuarto hijo, Psalm, quien nació en mayo por gestación subrogada.

De acuerdo con la narración de su programa de televisión, su médico llamó, después de practicarle varias pruebas médicas, para comunicar la noticia de que sus análisis de sangre revelaron anticuerpos asociados con el lupus y la artritis reumatoide.

A pesar de la alarma, el facultativo explicó que el resultado no significa que padezca de forma precisa las dos enfermedades, sino que posee los anticuerpos de ambas, que podrían permanecer «dormidos» y desarrollarse en el futuro, como también mantener esa condición y no generar la afección.

Kim Kardashian Said She Was Depressed After Testing Positive for Lupus Antibodies

ENGLISH

The ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star broke down in tears during Sunday (09.09.19) night’s premiere of her family’s E! reality TV show after her doctor told her that she has traces of the autoimmune disease – which occurs when the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues and organs – and rheumatoid arthritis in her blood after she began complaining of painful wrists and tiredness.

Kim – who was expecting her fourth child Psalms via surrogate at the time – said: “Lately, my wrists have started to hurt again, but it’s definitely a different feeling than before. I feel this, like, in my bones. I just am, like, freaking out. I have a baby on the way, I have law school. It just really can scare you when you start really thinking about how much this is gonna really change my life.”

Her doctor was then heard speaking to her over the phone and said: “Your antibodies are positive for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. You’d have in addition to swollen joints, you’d have fevers, rashes, mouth sores and be really tired.”

However, he then went on to say that it doesn’t necessarily mean she has the conditions as the screenings can sometimes bring up a “false positive.”

He said: “Sometimes you can get false positives in these screenings.”
The 38-year-old star’s doctor then ordered some more tests to determine for sure whether she has Lupus and she was hoping to get the results at a later date.

The outcome wasn’t shared on the show but Kim was live tweeting throughout and said: “Luckily I got an answer quickly but it was a rollercoaster of emotions. Thinking about the pain in my hands and what it could be is really scary and can get you in a scary headspace. I was so anxious to just figure out what was wrong.”
