African Actress Famed For Curves Suffering Kidney Disease

An African actress whose curves have made her famous across the continent is currently hospitalized with kidney disease and many are questioning whether her waist training habit is to blame.

According to DailyMail reports:

An actress who has previously admitted to using a waist trainer has revealed she is receiving hospital treatment after suffering a kidney disease.

Princess Shyngle, who is also a writer and producer, posted three images on Instagram on Friday showing her arm hooked up to an intravenous drip.
The 24-year-old, who previously credited the trainers for her curvaceous figure, captioned the post: ‘Hospital bound… Kidney disease healing mercies oh Lord need your prayers ya’ll.’

She has since changed that caption to the “prayer hands/hi five” emoji.

Daily Mail spoke to doctors who cautioned that waist trainers can cause organs to shift:

Her illness comes as doctors warned that waist trainers, or corsets that women wear to achieve a smaller waist, can cause damage to internal organs.
Dr Galyna Selezneva, an aesthetic medical doctor who works at a London-based cosmetic surgery, spoke to MailOnline about the problems that can be associated with waist training, including changes to the ribs, bone structure and inner organ positions.

She said: ‘If someone gets addicted to wearing a waist trainer day after day the inner organs will shift.

‘There will be a disbalance in the cavity as it is not normal to have such as small waist.

‘There can also be changes to the ribs and bone structures. Obviously if you are wearing them repeatedly, you are not exercising the muscles so they are also wasting.’

Dr Galyna also added that kidney disease can cover a variety of illness including kidney stones, which would not be down to waist trainers.

So it sounds like waist trainers may NOT have been the source of the problem. But surely they can’t be helping?
