Rob Kardashian: Hospitalized With Diabetes

by at . Comments

It's been a rough year for Rob Kardashian, and now it seems that the 28-year-old's self-destructive habits have caught up with him.

TMZ is reporting that Rob was hospitalized and diagnosed with diabetes over the weekend.

As fans of Rob and his siblings know, Rob has been struggling with weight and compulsive eating issues for quite some time. 

Still, the news that he was suffering from diabetes reportedly came as a shock to both Kardashian and his famous family.

Little is known about Rob's hospitalization at this time. However, it is widely believed that the reality star is suffering from Type 2 diabetes.

This condition is primarily caused by obesity and makes up the vast majority of diabetes cases in the United States.

Fortunately, sources close to the family say Rob took the diagnosis as a wake-up call, and he's intent on starting 2016 healthy.

Not a moment too soon.

Just last week, there were unrelated reports of Rob entering rehab to receive treatment for his addictions and overeating issues.

He was said to be reluctant at the time, but hopefully his latest health scare will convince him to seek out the professional help he clearly needs.

Insiders have claimed that Rob considered gastric bypass surgery in the past, but had a last minute change of heart.

Here's hoping that whatever treatment option he chooses, the sock designer is able to fully restore his health, once and for all.

Good luck, Rob.
