In 2013, I posted about the Crown Princess’ history of ailments and unfortunate accidents. (Some of you have supplied updates in the comments on that post.)
Today, she, her husband and her doctor revealed in an interview (as well as in a press release from the court) that she has been diagnosed with chronic pulmonary fibrosis. They haven’t quite figured out more specifics – but she will undergo testing.
It has been going on for a while, though they did not specify for how long in the interview.
It is only recently that they have discovered what it is, and since she will require time for hospital appointments – both for further clarification and treatment – and have low points in her health – they have decided to share rather than have her absent without a specific reason. The illness is in an early stage.
In March this year she was hospitalized – and had to cancel the attendance at the book fair in Leipzig.
In November 2017 – she got benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.
Autumn 2015 – she was advised by her doctor to cancel the trip to Brazil because of frequent infections of the airways.
