(USA Today) – Amy Schumer has been diagnosed with Cushing syndrome.

Schumer appeared earlier this month on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” during a press tour for Season 2 of Life & Beth on Hulu and received an onslaught of online criticism regarding her appearance. The comedian opened up to journalist Jessica Yellin about her health journey in the News Not Noise column on Substack.

“I was also in MRI machines four hours at a time, having my veins shut down from the amount of blood drawn and thinking I may not be around to see my son grow up. So finding out I have the kind of Cushing that will just work itself out and I’m healthy was the greatest news imaginable,” Schumer said in the interview with Yellen.

According to Mayo Clinic, Cushing syndrome “happens when the body has too much of the hormone cortisol for a long time.” Schumer said she felt “reborn” while sharing the news amid the criticism she received.

“The shaming and criticism of our ever-changing bodies is something I have dealt with and witnessed for a long time. I want so much for women to love themselves and be relentless when fighting for their own health in a system that usually doesn’t believe them,” Schumer told Yellin.
