Charlotte Dawson broke down in tears after being told she is on the verge of Type 2 diabetes by doctors.

The new mum, who was diagnosed with gestational diabetes during her pregnancy, opened up in an emotional post on Instagram yesterday (June 15).

In the clip, Charlotte explained her mum was recently diagnosed, while her famous dad Les also battled the condition.

What did Charlotte Dawson say?

Charlotte, 28, revealed: “I’ve kind of felt a bit like when I was pregnant with gestational diabetes. It is completely different to Type 2 diabetes.

“Last week I went to the doctors and I’ve actually basically been warned.

“Some tests have come back cause obviously they wanted to see me about the diabetes and I’m a bit like my dad. I don’t like going to the doctors. I don’t like doing stuff like that. I’ve basically been told I could have Type 2 diabetes if I don’t sort my diet out.

I’ve got to change my diet completely

“They’ve said obviously they need to keep a check on me now cause of my family history and everything. I’ve got to change my diet completely.”

In addition, she said: “If I don’t clean my diet up I’m going to be on insulin because my blood sugar is that bad.”

The reality star later broke down in tears as she discussed her mum, Tracy.

“I know he’s around but he’s not here. Everything about my mum, I panic if she’s got a bloody cough or cold.”

Meanwhile, fans rushed to show their support on the post.
