Did You Know These Famous Celebrities Were Seriously Ill?


Ariana Grande: Severe allergies

Ariana Grande has more than one allergy, and while some of her intolerances are pretty standard, some are more than annoying. Shellfish is a big no-no for her, and the results would be shattering if she did accidentally consume some shrimp.


But that’s highly unlikely to happen since she doesn’t eat any seafood or any other product that comes from an animal due to ethical reasons. She is also allergic to bananas and cats.

Lena Dunham: Endometriosis

Lena Dunham has been diagnosed with endometriosis for over 10 years now. The condition is brought about by cells from the uterus lining being displaced and growing in other areas of the body.


Not only does endometriosis make life difficult every month, but it can also hinder a woman’s chances of conceiving. Opening up about her struggle in her newsletter in November of 2015, Lena isn’t alone: her fellow stars Susan Sarandon, Jillian Michaels, and Padma Lakshmi also struggle with endometriosis. There are a number of medications available to slow the progression of the disease, and surgery is also available to remove growths from the abdomen.
