Rob Kardashian beats diabetes

Rob Kardashian has claimed he no longer has diabetes after losing weight by eating his fiancée's home cooking.

The 29-year-old television personality was diagnosed with type two diabetes - a condition that causes blood sugar levels to become too high - after he reached an unhealthy weight of 300 pounds. Now though, he claims his pregnant partner, 28-year-old Blac Chyna, has cured him of the condition by helping him change his diet.

Speaking to People magazine, the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star said: "I dropped 30 pounds really quickly. But I gained about 20 pounds back. So now I am in that uncomfortable state again. I weigh 285 pounds now. I've got to get back into the routine. But it's hard because Chyna's pregnant and eats whatever she wants, and I enjoy eating with her."

The pair - who are gearing up for the release of their own reality show 'Rob and Chyna' - had a discussion about Rob's health when he ended up in hospital as a result of not taking his prescribed insulin. Rob revealed that Chyna told him his diabetes would be "gone" if he let her cook for him.

He said: "It was a big-time scare. I had found out I had type two diabetes six months before but I stopped taking my insulin. I didn't enjoy the routine. So I ended up nonstop throwing up, and I couldn't even swallow because my mouth was dry. I felt like I was going to die. When I got out of the hospital, I knew I needed to make changes. Chyna and I had a really big talk and she told me that by having her cook for me, my diabetes would be gone. And it is."

Rob - who missed his sister Kim Kardashian West's wedding to Kanye West because he felt "uncomfortable" with how he looked - says his goal weight is 210 pounds, and he's certain Chyna can get him there.

He said: "She got me through my darkest times. Chyna definitely motivates me. Being with her got me over the insecurity of being out in public."
