For a long time, comedian Pete Davidson has been suffering from Crohn’s disease, which is a chronic inflammatory condition of the gastrointestinal tract.
Crohn’s disease is an incurable but treatable autoimmune disease where the bowel becomes inflamed, according to the Mayo Clinic.
As a result of the inflammation, a number of symptoms can occur. Symptoms include fever, diarrhea, fatigue, abdominal pain, and more.
What disease does Pete Davidson have?
Davidson has been open about his mental health over the years, revealing in 2017 that he was diagnosed with BPD after years of battling depression and anxiety.
“One of my psychiatrists [diagnosed me],” the Saturday Night Live star said at the time. “He was always saying before this big meltdown, ‘You’re probably bipolar or borderline, we’re just going to have to figure it out.’ ”
Davidson has previously said that he believes that losing his father at age 7 to the terrorist attacks at the Twin Towers on Sept. 11, 2001, had a huge impact on his mental health.
“My big thing is trust,” he explained. “One day he was here and the next day he was gone.”
