According to Mingpao News, the singer recently posted a message on Instagram to clarify the situation and revealed that she was suffering from a mysterious disease.
Hong Kong singer-actress Grace Ip has recently denied rumours of pregnancy, which sparked after she was seen looking fuller than usual.
“For the past six months, I have bloated up to the point that people thought I was pregnant or just gained weight. So, here’s the explanation.”
Grace revealed that she started feeling unwell after the New Year, and thought it was water retention around the lymph nodes when she was told that her neck looked swollen.
However, she decided to seek medical help when the condition got worse. 20 pounds heavier and two ultrasounds later, Grace stated that the doctors still could not determine the cause.
Grace continued, “Then I went for a check-up and the doctor told me I had thyroglobulin. But it still didn’t explain why my neck was swollen.”
The singer revealed that she had tried various methods of cure until she found herself a good doctor in Chinese medicine.
“I am feeling a lot better and I am losing weight now. I will continue taking Chinese medicine. Thank you for your concern!”
