Scott Disick has opened up about his secret health battle that has left him with ‘no energy to run around with his children.’
The Keeping Up With the Kardshians star, 37, revealed he suffers with constant exhaustion that leaves him struggling to get out of bed in the morning.
Speaking in the latest episode of the Kardashians’ E! reality series, he admitted: “Lately, I’ve just had no energy to do anything. I wake up and I’m just shot.
“I don’t have the drive to get up and run around with my girlfriend and my kids,” continued Scott, who was dating Sofia Ritchie at the time and has three children by former long-term girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian.
“I just don’t have the energy. I don’t know if I’m getting old or I’m just not in great shape, but I just want to see if there’s anything wrong with me.”
Scott said he initially feared he had contracted the coronavirus and decided to seek medical help to determine what the problem was.
After undergoing a series of blood tests, the anxious reality star finally discovered what has been troubling him.
“I’m definitely a drop nervous to do all these blood panels, because I’ve put this vessel through a lot of trauma, I’m not going to lie,” said Scott, who has a long documented battle with booze and checked into rehab twice before. “I’m definitely scared, but if there’s anything wrong with me, whatever is the best way to get my body functioning better is what I’m going to do.”
“I feel like there’s definitely been some stress in my life,” he went on. “Missing my parents, it’s really hard. My life hasn’t always been easy — I used to drink and party and go out a ton, so my body, it’s been through some rough waters and taken some pretty bad beatings. I never thought that there was a possibility any of that stuff could affect me in the long run.”
Scott later discovered that his testosterone levels are ‘clinically low’.
In a candid chat with Kris Jenner, Scott then shared his regret over his party-boy lifestyle that he believes has contributed to his problems.
“All of the beatings that my body took over the years of drinking and partying and running around, my body can’t be perfect,” he said. “So obviously I don’t drink anymore, but my body still has things in it, even from taking sleeping medications, doctor-prescribed medications. And then when I got my blood results in, my testosterone was so dramatically low, they were like, concerned how I even have the energy to get out of bed every day.”
Momager Kris advised that Scott was on the right path having spoken to doctors.
“We want you to be happy and healthy, that’s all. All of us,” she told him.
In May this year, Scott was pictured arriving at a treatment centre in Colarado where he stayed for a week before heading back to Los Angeles.
His attorney Marty Singer denied reports that Scott sought treatment over cocaine or alcohol abuse and said he was ‘working on his past traumas.’
The reality star, who lost both his parents three months apart in 2013, split from girlfriend Sofia Ritchie shortly after.
