Nicole Richie has recently been diagnosed with hypoglycemia, which is low blood sugar, her spokesperson said.
Another health problem for Nicole Richie. The socialite collapsed, yet again, while shooting episodes for the 5th season of "The Simple Life" last week, after suffering from "dehydration" on March 2nd. And now after lots of health related issues lately, the diagnosis is made public that Nicole is suffering from hypoglycemia.
"In her ongoing effort to focus on her well-being, Nicole has recently been diagnosed with hypoglycemia," her spokesperson confirmed. Okay then what is hypoglycemia? According to the Hypoglycemia Support Foundation's Website, "Hypoglycemia, also called low blood sugar, occurs when your blood glucose (blood sugar) level drops too low to provide enough energy for your body's activities."
Nevertheless, Nicole's rep says that since she got her diagnosis, "She is taking steps to manage it." Health issues aside, Nicole and her friend Paris Hilton have been counselors at a health camp as part of the 5th season of "The Simple Life," which will premiere May later this year.
