Kim Kardashian at Risk of Developing  Gestational Diabetes, Pre-eclampsia

Kim Kardashian has seriously struggled with pregnancy, starting when she was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia after falling pregnant with her first child, North West.

Pre-eclampsia is a condition characterized by high blood pressure, sometimes with fluid retention and proteinuria. The disease led her to go into premature labor.

The 34-year-old then struggled to get pregnant for a second time, having to go through surgery to clean out her womb. She was also warned that she'll probably have to undergo a hysterectomy as soon as she has given birth.

Now, Kim has said to her family that she might be suffering from gestational diabetes. Doctors also warned her that she is at risk of developing pre-eclampsia again.

The new revelation was taken out of a promotional clip of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Following a routine ultrasound, Kim was seen telling her family: "The doctors saw more fluid than usual in my placenta, which can mean I have diabetes."

She added: "Once you have pre-eclampsia you are at risk of having it again."

With all of this physical and mental issues going on, it is no wonder that Kim recently described pregnancy as the 'worst experience' of her life.
