Although Karena Ng previously expressed her intention to gain weight, her recent photo shocked many, as she appeared gaunt and scrawny at a recent event.

As reported on On CC, the actress, who will begin filming her new movie “City Hunter” with South Korean actor Lee Min-ho, seemed to have lost more weight since her last public appearance, sparking rumours that she was suffering from gastroesophageal reflux disease, also known as GERD.

GERD is a digestive disorder that affects the lowed esophageal sphincter and causes a person to suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion.
Reportedly, Karena has been constantly feeling nauseous, and had lost a significant amount of weight due to vomiting.
Sources also claimed that her condition has caused the delay of her new film, and that the actress is now consulting a nutritionist to gain back her lost weight.
When asked to address the rumour, her manager however denied any health problem, saying, “She is very healthy, thank you very much. She has just returned from a film festival in Korea and her new movie will begin filming in September.”
