Denise Richards has her fans to thank for helping her make a big lifestyle change. During the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion, viewers noticed that Denise’s thyroid looked enlarged. The gland on the front of the neck was very pronounced. It led many fans to reach out to Denise and tell her to get it checked out.
Denise recently posted on Instagram about her progress. She wrote:
“It’s amazing to me in a short time eliminating gluten from my diet how much my thyroid has changed. A few of you pointed out after the #RHOBH reunion that my thyroid was enlarged. You were right, it was something I ignored until pointed out. I had no idea how much our diet really can affect our body and for me how toxic gluten really is… I thank all of you who sent me messages. #selfcare.”
It isn’t the first time that Denise has thanked fans for their concern about her. The other time was after Denise revealed that her 8-year-old daughter, Eloise, lives with a chromosomal disorder and has special needs. She spoke with Entertainment Tonight about her difficulty making the decision to go public with that information. “It came up on the show, and people watching… would see different things about her,” she explained. “So, obviously, I had to talk about it. I was so touched at how supportive and really wonderful everyone has been, sharing their stories and bringing it out in the open.”
