In an interview with Elle, the VS model said she suffers from an autoimmune disorder. Hadid said, “I have Hashimoto’s disease. It’s a thyroid disease, and it’s now been two years since taking the medication for it, so for the VS show I didn’t want to lose any more weight, I just want to have muscles in the right place, and if my butt can get a little perkier, then that’s good.”

WARDROBE MALFUNCTION: Gigi Hadid handles it perfectly

The disease causes the immune system to attack the thyroid gland, which can lead to hypothyriodism. Medication can be taken to regulate hormone levels, and bring the metabolism back to a normal level.

Goiters, or enlarged thyroids could be the first signs on Hashimoto’s.
