Den 46-åringen, som spilte som Kristina Braverman på den langvarige NBC-serien, syntes å være åpenbarende at hun ventet sitt fjerde barn – men i stedet var det et hint om at hun har kolitt, noe hun åpnet om torsdag i et berørt Instagram-innlegg.

Thank you to everyone who has sent me well wishes. I’m not pregnant but wanted to shed some light on some issues we all may deal with, especially women. It’s never really talked about because it’s not sexy, pretty, our glamorous to say the least, so I decided to share a photo to possibly inspire my friends (you), create a platform to share stories, and rely on each other for support and guidance. I’ve had colitis for almost 2 years and sometimes when I get flareups it’s painful and frustrating, so for all of you who suffer from colitis or other abdominal issues, please know you’re not alone. I’m going for a check up on Friday and following up with colonoscopy this month. I want to stress the importance of getting regular check-ups with your gastroenterologist or family physician. I hope this open discussion will lead to many other things we face as women, mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, and every role we take on. Take time for yourself and go get checked. Even if you’re not having issues it’s important. Please note that I am not sponsored by anyone but me – I did this on my own, and just wanted to share. That being said, a huge thank you to these foundations that are bringing awareness and guidance to all of us for better health💜 #colon #colonoscopy #colitis #ulcerativecolitis #americanmedicalassociation #clevelandclinic #crohncolitisawareness #crohnsdisease #livehealthy #womenshealth #prevention #health

Kolitt er en inflammatorisk tarmsykdom som ofte kan forårsake en rekke symptomer, inkludert magesmerter og betennelser i fordøyelseskanalen.

“Jeg ønsket å bringe til alles oppmerksomhet noen problemer jeg har hatt med magen min,” sa hun i den nyeste Instagram-videoen og la til at hun vil “understreke viktigheten av å få regelmessig kontroll med din gastroenterolog eller familielege .”
