Almost a year after she took three weeks off following her announcement that she had been diagnosed with Graves’ disease, talk show host Wendy Williams is taking another hiatus from her daytime talk show, The Wendy Williams Show.
The show announced Friday that Williams, 54, “is taking a necessary, extended break from her show to focus on her personal and physical well-being.”
“As Wendy Williams Hunter previously shared, she fractured her shoulder and has been on the mend,” reads the statement posted on the show’s official Instagram page. “Over the past few days, Wendy has experienced complications regarding her Graves’ Disease that will require treatment.”
Graves’ disease is an immune system disorder that results in the overproduction of thyroid hormones (hyperthyroidism). Although a number of disorders may result in hyperthyroidism, Graves’ disease is a common cause.
Because thyroid hormones affect a number of different body systems, signs and symptoms associated with Graves’ disease can be wide-ranging and significantly influence your overall well-being. Although Graves’ disease may affect anyone, it’s more common among women and before the age of 40.
