Earlier this year, the US daytime talk show host shared an update on her condition with her Instagram followers.
In a photo, Wendy is seen sitting on a table with her swollen feet and ankles close to the camera to highlight the severity of her chronic condition, lymphoedema.
Lymphoedema is a long term chronic condition that causes swelling in the body’s tissues.It can affect any part of the body but typically occurs in the arms and legs.
The most common symptoms in addition to swelling are; a feeling of heaviness or tightness, restricted range of motion, aching or discomfort and recurring infections.
In 2019, Wendy revealed she had been diagnosed with lymphoedema after addressing paparazzi photos of her swollen legs.
Meanwhile, she took an extended break from her talk show in the same year after suffering complications with Graves’ disease, an autoimmune condition which affects the thyroid.
