Jack Whitehall’s girlfriend, Roxy Horner, shared an update on her health after being taken to the hospital.
She was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes last May and recently she almost passed out from the disease.
The model revealed her blood sugar levels are low and won’t return to normal.
Her friend had to call an ambulance for her.
“After my last post on diabetes I had a few messages about how I am managing and the truth is I am trying my best but it is still difficult,” she wrote on Instagram.
“I’ve been having a really hard time managing my blood glucose levels over the past few weeks, they squeal for absolutely no reason, I go off when I’m getting too high and I’ve had a few times have fallen too much for my liking lately.”
Roxy added: “My friend had to call an ambulance for me the day before. I started to lose consciousness, my whole body was shaking, the level was quite low and won’t come back after drinking four glasses of water. Apple.
“It’s kind of weird to me because I’m still figuring this out and a month ago I really thought I’d start doing it but it’s always been a roller coaster and I know I’m going to feel much better soon, maybe even tomorrow.
“I’ll be fine. My problems feel small compared to what’s going on in the world and I consider myself lucky to be safe in my country.”
Back in May, she didn’t specify what she was diagnosed with other than cursed autoimmune diseases.
Since being diagnosed with diabetes, the star has shared her journey with fans.
She even told Marie Claire how it ‘changed her life’.

“Type 1 diabetes changed my life, but what is worth remembering is that perhaps it taught me how to stand up and listen to my body,” says Roxy.
“It took me a lot of time off work but it’s okay, I’ve only been diagnosed for six months so I need some time off.
“My company prime minister has been very understanding and supportive. My boyfriend is unbelievable. I’m so lucky in that regard.”
At one point, she even shared photos of herself injecting insulin into her legs while in a taxi and at a restaurant table.
