Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland has revealed news of her recent hospitalisation, due to her chronic health condition.
The star posted a selfie to Instagram Stories, captioning it with, “Sometimes a selfie is more than just a good angle and feelin’ cute.
"I’ve decided to share my truth. As painful as it is.”
Sarah was born with kidney dyspepsia and had to undergo a transplant in 2012, but still struggles with many health problems as a result.
Her recent hospitalisation meant she was torn away from work, but she’s a strong believer in putting her health first.
After having to skip awards ceremonies and dealing with cruel comments from trolls online about her weight, she opened up about her ordeals, saying, “[People say] ‘eat a burger,’ ‘your head is bigger than your body and that’s disgusting,’ … And you’re right! …
"No one’s head should be bigger than their body but considering I’ve basically been on bed rest for the past few months, I’ve lost a lot of muscle mass.
"My circumstances have put me in a place where I’m not in control of what my body looks like. So I strive to be as healthy as possible, as everyone should.”
We’re sending her our love and well wishes as she continues on her journey to better health!
