Odd man out Kardashian family member, Rob Kardashian, was reportedly rushed to a Los Angeles hospital after feeling ill this weekend and not improving. When the former Keeping Up With the Kardashians star’s condition failed to improve, his family thought it best to have him medically evaluated.  A medical examination discovered that Rob is now a diabetic, a condition he was unaware he had. 

Over recent years, Rob has met with more than his fair share of personal battles.  The young Kardashian has gained over 100 pounds, struggled with depression and has seesawed over career decisions.  Once animated and personable, Rob has seemingly faded to black, opting to take himself out of the public eye, despite being encouraged and supported by various family members.  Sister Khloe, who was interviewed by People back in October of this year spoke to the news outlet about her brother stating, “He’s such a great guy. That’s also what’s so infuriating,” Khloé said. “He’s charming, charismatic, everything. But I’m like, where is your will to live? Where is your will to live life? Let’s be around people!”  A close family source also spoke to People recently about the effect Rob’s hermit like existence has had on the famous clan, “Rob is still struggling and it makes the family sad.”

Even though Rob was discharged from the medical facility, according to E! News, he will now have to examine his lifestyle choices very closely if he does not want to wind up back in the hospital.  According to a family insider who spoke to E! News, Rob’s insulin levels were alarmingly high and physicians strongly advised him to consider going the healthy route as far as diet and exercise.  “It was a wake up call,” the insider told E! News.
