Amy Schumer reveals she has Cushing syndrome

Comedian and actress Amy Schumer recently opened up about her health struggles, shedding light on the challenges she’s been facing. Following her appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” Schumer faced criticism about her changed appearance on social media. In response, she took to Instagram to address the situation, revealing that she’s currently dealing with “medical and hormonal things.”

In an interview with Jessica Yellen’s News Not Noise newsletter, Schumer disclosed her diagnosis of exogenous Cushing syndrome, a condition triggered by steroid injections resulting in an excess of cortisol in her body. This condition can lead to various symptoms, including weight gain, fatigue, facial swelling, headaches, and more. Despite the uncertainty she faced during the diagnostic process, Schumer expressed relief upon learning that her condition would resolve on its own.

During the interview, Schumer emphasized the importance of advocating for women’s health and promoting body positivity. She encouraged women to embrace self-love and advocate for their health in a system that often overlooks their concerns.

Schumer concluded her conversation by urging kindness towards others and oneself, emphasizing the importance of empathy and understanding. By sharing her journey, Schumer hopes to inspire others to be kinder and more understanding towards themselves and those around them.
