Bethenny Frankel revealed she’s been experiencing horrific pain dealing with an autoimmune disease after fans asked questions about her appearance, RadarOnline.com has learned.

She said, “I am so dehydrated and riddled with aches and pains. I have had liters of Pedialyte and water and Kombucha and coconut water and it just goes right through me and I’ve gained like four pounds because my body is trying to hold on to any water it can.”

She continued, "Dehydration is so real. This is like very intense, and it’s gotten really bad in the past few years because of this autoimmune thing I’m dealing with."

She added, “A while back I shared what has been a serious battle with POTS. This is an auto-immune disorder that seems to have been drastically exacerbated since COVID. I know there are many of you out there, so thanks for all of the information. It’s certainly a condition to manage.”

“I suffer from chronic severe dehydration. I have always experienced extremely low blood pressure and dehydration, but it’s gotten exponentially worse," she continued.

Frankel said, “I make a tremendous effort to stay hydrated, get IV’s, and I haven’t had liquor for 6 months. I’m basically on the case.”
