Last week, Rob Kardashian was hospitalized after complaining about various ailments that caused concern amongst his family and friends.
Upon being admitted, Rob was diagnosed with diabetes, and sources close to the situation say that he could've lapsed into a coma if he hadn't received the proper treatment.
His loved ones hoped the health scare would serve as a wake-up call for Rob, but now the 28-year-old is reportedly ignoring his doctor's warnings and carrying on with his reckless lifestyle.
“[Rob] continues to drink Red Bulls which are loaded with sugar,” a source close to the situation tells Radar Online. “He’s eating junk food too.
The insider says Rob is in denial about the severity of his problems, which is particularly frustrating for his inner circle, as he could potentially reverse the damage he's done to his body with a few simple lifestyle changes.
“The diabetes diagnosis should have been a wake-up call for Rob, but he is in absolute denial about it,” the source says.
“He refuses to monitor his blood sugar daily as doctors have told him to do. Even more frustrating is that Rob’s diabetes would likely go away if he began working out and eating healthy!
“There is nothing the family can do to help Rob because he is shutting everyone out. With all of the resources available to him, including nutritionists, chefs, and trainers, this is completely manageable but Rob isn’t willing to make any effort.”
The insider adds that while Rob could recover if he were to take immediate action, his situation is currently dire - and it looks as though it will only get worse.
“His pancreas is basically not functioning,” the source says. “He also has kidney problems. He’s very, very sick.”
