She said: ‘Five months ago I was diagnosed with four autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, sjogrens syndrome and celiac. Not to mention IBS.
‘My immune system was so low that I was tested for HIV as well as several types of cancer as doctors were left baffled.
‘I tried my best to continue as normal but it was almost impossible to train and further my career as a professional bodybuilder. I couldn’t even walk up the stairs without being short of breath.’
The mother of two revealed that she discovered she was suffering from breast implant illness’ after she read of other women’s experiences online about becoming sick from their implants.
Ms. King said: ‘I had no idea breast implants could be so toxic and cause your body to react so badly. The rejection caused issues to spread throughout my whole body.’
Ms. King said she had no reservations about remove her implants immediately.
She said: ‘It was an easy decision to make, even though I knew I’d be left with little to no breast tissue afterwards. I was preparing to be deformed as well, knowing that I had to have a double capsulectomy.’
