Toya Diagnosed with a serious health condition…
Ladies take heed!!! Toya Wright, reality star and former wife of rapper Lil Wayne, has revealed that she was diagnosed with fibroid tumors several years ago. Wright experienced painful cramps during her period, along with severe bleeding. Toya has opened up about the changes she made in her lifestyle to help with the condition.
Wright revealed that she was experiencing lots of pain during her time of the month and decided to see her doctor.
The 33-year-old reality star said, “My body wasn’t like that before, so I thought something was wrong.” Wright’s physician diagnosed her with fibroids, muscular tumors that grow in the wall of the uterus.
Toya was a little scared when she received the news, saying, “I was nervous because at the time I didn’t know anything about fibroids.”
Wright decided to tackle the issues by making changes to her diet and exercising more. She cut out caffeine and began drinking more water. She also eliminated fatty foods and red meat.
She stated, “I had to switch it up because I used to eat all types of stuff and I would just get bigger. I had to scale back and eat healthier things like fish and salads.”
Toya also started exercising four times a week. She said, “My uterus is the size of the five-months pregnant woman. I found exercising has been more helpful in relieving the symptoms.”
She adds, “I do a lot of cardio, like walking and cycling. At that time of the month, the fibroids flare up, and when I exercise it helps me not feel so much pain.”
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services states that fibroids are pretty common in women in their 40s and early 50s. In fact, 20 to 80 percent of women develop them by the time they reach the age of 50.
The symptoms associated with fibroids can be painful, but thankfully most are not cancerous.
