Wendy Williams diagnosed with Graves' disease, taking hiatus from show

Williams announced the news to her audience on Wednesday, saying: "My doctor has prescribed-are you ready?-as of today, three weeks of vacation", she said. "I feel like there are birds swimming around my head..."

"Wendy is a true champion and has never missed a day of work", her representative said in a statement. Williams also confirmed that she was going through menopause and also added that she was dealing with Graves' disease. "I passed out", she said. She posted the announcement on Twitter and urged women to consistently check on their health.

On Oct. 31, Williams was celebrating Halloween by dressing up in an elaborate Statue of Liberty costume when she suddenly passed out in front of her studio audience and viewers at home.

When the star returned to her show on Monday, she apologized to fans for the inconvenience and expressed that she was feeling better.

In addition to these symptoms, if Graves' disease isn't treated, other symptoms can develop.

Although many have criticized Williams for being too thin, the Talk Show host said she weighs a healthy 146 pounds after losing 50 pounds for her 50th birthday.

Graves' disease is an autoimmune disorder that causes the thyroid gland to become overactive, or hyperthyroidism.

She also took the opportunity to send a message to her viewers, especially women, to put their health first.

If you think you could have Graves' disease and you have numerous Graves' disease symptoms in this article, talk to your doctor as soon as possible. "That's why three weeks, even tho I've been off for one week Im going to fix that I'll be back in two".

The TV personality has often boasted about how she never takes a sick day from her show and had a ideal attendance record during her time as a radio host as well. Who's gonna pay my bills? "I come from working class". I will be back Monday and topics will be POPPING!

Williams canceled a few shows last week after suffering from flu-like symptoms, which she later revealed was due to thyroid issues.

Stay tuned; we will have a little bit more information on Williams' show and her future as it comes out.
