"Oh, please. I will snap your head off".
"Wendy is a true champion and has never missed a day of work". But do you know what?
"My thyroid has been totally cattywampus", Williams said. She posted the announcement on Twitter and urged women to consistently check on their health. During her taping a year ago, Williams fainted on-air and later explained after a commercial break that she had overheated while dressed in her Statue of Liberty costume. Williams, 53, has Graves' Disease and per doctor's orders must take two to three weeks off. "A live show was produced today so that Wendy could speak directly to her fans and explain her condition". She also said symptoms of Graves' disease include weight loss, anxiety and moist hands, which she hasn't experienced, as well as irritability, trouble sleeping, trouble swallowing, rapid heartbeat and intolerance to heat, which she has experienced.
While announcing her hiatus, Williams also went into detail about Graves' disease, which the American Thyroid Association says is 7-8 times more common in women than men and is a form of hyperthyroidism.
The Mayo Clinic describes Graves' disease as an immune system disorder that results in the overproduction of thyroid hormones (hyperthyroidism).
If you think you could have Graves' disease and you have numerous Graves' disease symptoms in this article, talk to your doctor as soon as possible.
Graves' Disease, according to the American Thyroid Association (ATA), is "an autoimmune disease that leads to a generalized overactivity of the entire thyroid gland", named after Irish physician Robert Graves.
Ever the workhorse, Williams said she would be back in less than three weeks. She asked who will pay her bills from now on.
"As women when we have families we always put everything before us, including business". Williams also took a shot at Meghan Markle when she announced that Markle tried to apply for a job at the show. "I'm a champ and I'm back". She already canceled last week's shows, noting that she was "feeling flu-ish". Either way, rerun episodes will air during her hiatus.
