Gigi Hadid Has Hashimoto's Disease

Gigi Hadid Opens Up About Her Battle With Hashimoto's Disease

Gigi Hadid bravely opened up about her battle with Hashimoto's disease during a recent interview with Elle magazine. The Victoria's Secret model says the thyroid disease — which is more common for women than men — affected her metabolism, weight loss, and even her muscle gain ahead of this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion show.

"My metabolism actually changed like crazy this year," Hadid said. "For the [Victoria's Secret] show I didn't want to lose any more weight, I just want to have muscles in the right place." Gigi also revealed she has been taking medication for the disease for two years, and hopes that the thyroid disease won't affect her ability to get a perkier bottom. "If my butt can get a little perkier, then that's good," she told the magazine.
