The former Disney Channel star suffers from an autoimmune disease called Lupus. This disease means that her body attacks healthy cells and compromises her immune system. While Lupus itself is not a deadly disease, the complications that it can cause certainly are. For example, if Gomez were to contract vibrio – a bacteria that grows in warm water in the summer while at the beach – it would likely kill her. Whereas to someone with a healthy immune system it would just make them very sick, but it would be treatable.
She suffered a brain aneurysm back in 2001. It took her years to learn how to walk and talk again, and the recovery from this kind of disease is not always good. In fact, she lost the ability to do many of the things she learned to do as a child, including the fact that she could read. She also has a stutter, and has to manage her health by avoiding many foods and alcohol. She’s been healthy since her recovery, but she’s always careful to make sure she doesn’t experience the same thing again.
