Will Rob Kardashian use his latest health scare to turn his life around?

This is the question now being posed after the reality star was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday and diagnosed by doctors with diabetes.

Few details are available regarding the incident, but E! News confirms that the 28-her old felt sick over the Christmas weekend.

He was therefore taken to the hospital and, following a handful of tests, given the difficult news.

Sadly, this story doesn't come as a major shock to anyone who has been following the journey of Rob Kardashian.

The 28-year-old has admittedly become fat after very likely overeating as a response to his unhappy state in life.

But those close to the sock designer hope this health scare will finally force him to make some changes.

"He's home already. He went for a little and is fine now. It was a wake up call," a source tells E! News of Kardashian.

The insider explains that Rob's tests revealed his blood sugar levels were very high, with physicians telling him that he needs to lose weight, exercise and significantly alter his diet.

Otherwise, the situation will only grow worse.

No famous family member has spoken on Rob's condition since the hospitalization, although Khloe Kardashian just shared a sad picture on Instagram, writing the word "Melancholy" as a caption.

There's little doubt that Rob is on her mind.

The former Dancing with the Stars finalist has purposely remained out of the limelight for over a year now, and he's become the subject of wide speculation as a result.

He has reportedly gained over 100 pounds since bailing on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding back in May of 2014.

"If only you could see yourself through my eyes!" Khloe also captioned a blurry shot on her brother on Instagram recently, adding in an attempt to raise Rob's spirits:

"I'll forever be obsessed with you! My one and only! #MyAce"

Let's hope this diabetes diagnosis ends up being a blessing in disguise for the troubled young man, who begins to see himself as positively as his big sister does.
