The Celebrity Big Brother and Geordie Shore star is hospitalized as he battles chronic illness

Celebrity Big Brother star Amelia Lily has been hospitalized with a chronic illness.

The 29-year-old, who also starred in reality TV series Geordie Shore, shared on Instagram on Monday that she had been in hospital for over two hours and was exhausted.

Although the star didn't elaborate on what was going on, the hospital visit was related to the X Factor star's diabetes.

While sitting in the waiting room, the star shared a snap of her takeaway coffee and wrote: “I was in hospital for over two hours.” Being diabetic is mentally stressful at times.

“Everyone who has it knows what I mean.”

According to the NHS definition, diabetes is usually a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar levels to rise too high.

There are two kinds. In type 1, the pancreas does not produce insulin and in type 2, the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or the body's cells do not respond to insulin.

Amelia was diagnosed with diabetes when she was just three years old and during her time on X Factor she revealed her condition was very serious.

The star admitted at the time that there was a chance she could go blind if her blood sugar was too high.

At the time, she described how she had to adjust her insulin levels before performances to offset the effects of the adrenaline rush on stage

“I need four injections a day and I've had that for 14 years now,” Amelia told the Daily Star, adding: “When I was younger I had seizures.”

“Adrenaline uses a lot of energy, so I have to lower my insulin levels before I go on stage.” “It's hard to find the right balance, but for safety reasons I always lower my insulin just before training,” Amelia revealed.

“There's still a risk of something happening on stage, but I can tell if I'm shaking or need chocolate.”

Meanwhile, Amelia confessed in a previous interview with The Sun that she believes the illness has made her stronger.

“I would be lying if I said it wasn't hard sometimes, and I think every diabetic would agree with me.”

“But it becomes easier and becomes part of your daily routine.” To stay healthy, you have to stay on track.

“I questioned myself for years. 'Why me? Why can't I go without a shot one day?' But now I think it's made me stronger.'
