Nicole Diagnosed with Hypoglycemia

Nicole Richie continues to be plagued by health issues on the set of The Simple Life. A few weeks back it was dehydration that took down the diminutive starlet, but it seems like she still can't stay on her two feet. Sources are saying that she has "had trouble walking and speaking clearly on set." Then last week she reportedly collapsed on location in Malibu and had to retire to her trailer for the remainder of the day. Among others, this behavior apparently isn't going over so well with her co-star Paris. Now, Nicole's rep is saying that Nic suffers from hypoglycemia which can cause dizzyness, fainting and other symptoms when blood sugar gets too low. Hopefully now that she's got a diagnosis, the starlet can get herself eating a little more often and avoid any other health scares!

"shes an average weight for her height"No, if she weighed maybe 100 pounds, she would be on the extreme low end of healthy weights for her height.Her bmi is severely low and not at all average.-Bug

I have hypoglycemia and when your blood sugar gets low, the first thing that you want is to eat. It really scared me at first before I was diagnosed..........the dizziness, fainting. All that I knew was that I needed to eat something with sugar. Nicole needs to eat to feel better.

She obviously has a problem. For her it's not as cut and dry as "Just eat".

I'm going to agree with cheekyem. I like Nicole as well but I wish that she would make some better choices. The diagnosis does not surprise me after her body was treated the way that it was. That's her body's way of saying "HELLO! WAKE UP AND TAKE CARE OF ME!" Paris is still bleh as far as I'm concerned.

I am afraid for Nicole. I hope she will take care of herself, regardless of whether or not her publicist is telling the truth.

I really can't feel sorry for her. I'm hypoglycemic as well, and I know it's my own fault when I get dizzy, because I haven't been eating well. It's a pretty easy self-diagnosis. I think it's common for women to find it when they start to take their diet into their own hands. It's pretty straightforward: eat.-Bug

I'm hypoglycemic too. And once you're aware of it and you educate yourself on how to take care of yourself, you don't have too many problems. But of course, the main thing is you actually have to eat!

Ha I registered on this site just so I could add my silly two cents...I am hypoglycemic and so is my aunt. The hypoglycemia test is fairly easy to perform but is a TOTAL bitch for the patient. You have to fast for a day, then drink this ridiculously sugary drink, then fast for several more hours, getting blood drawn every two hours in between. NOT fun at all, because the test is basically intended to make you sick. If you are hypoglycemic, you will get really ill and want to die (of course it registers in your glucose levels), if you aren't you'll only sort of feel icky from not eating.Anyway, perhaps if she does have the disorder, she only just found out because she put off taking the test, knowing how completely crappy it is. However, there are only 3 things I can think of that ever make me or my aunt feel dizzy/sick with hypoglycemia: (1) Eating too much sugar, (2) Not eating enough protein, or (and ESPECIALLY) (3) Not eating enough at all! And from the looks of it, I'd say we can safely conclude she isn't suffering from a sweet tooth...So yeah, as others have said, you pretty much only get really sick with hypoglycemia when you DON'T EAT enough. And look at her, it's pretty clear she's NOT eating enough. Which, if she does in fact have hypoglycemia, is even MORE dangerous. Hypoglycemics are supposed to eat 6 small, balanced, protein-rich meals a day. Not doing so can do all sorts of bad things to your body.Here's to hoping she gets some help soon!
