Gigi Hadid reveals the health battle behind her weight fluctuation

Gorgeous She seemed to be quite proud of her outfit as she posted this on Instagram

"I was also part of a holistic medical trial that helped my thyroid levels balance out", she continued.

The model - who has been subjected to ongoing scrutiny about her fluctuating weight - revealed that she used to suffer from Hashimoto's disease, a swelling of the thyroid gland which results in weight gain, tiredness and dry skin.

The 22-year-old added that she will no longer justify her slender physique to critics, and slammed suggestions that drugs were responsible for her weight loss.

Gigi's rant comes after she recently strutted her stuff down the catwalk at New York Fashion Week, stunning onlookers with bright pink hair, a zipped up pink crop top that exposed her midriff and a silver skirt.

Well said Gigi, nobody should be criticised for their body shape!

"Those of you who called me "too big for the industry" were seeing inflammation and water retention due to that".

She then defiantly added: 'I may be "too skinny" for you, honestly this skinny isn't what I want to be...' Her fellow model pal, Kendall Jenner, supported this comment with a re-tweet and "preach" response.

She explained she has been "properly medicated" the past several years to manage the autoimmune condition which attacks her thyroid, and admits her figure isn't what she "wants it to be".

Gigi went on to say that while stress and excessive travel - the hallmarks of her career - can affect the body, she's always eaten the same.

"I will not further explain the way my body looks, just as anyone, with a body type that doesn't suit ur "beauty" expectation, shouldn't have to", she said.

Gigi Hadid will not stand for body shaming of any kind.

She urged readers to "learn to have more empathy for others" and to realise that "you never really know the whole story". "Use your energy to lift those that you admire rather than be cruel to those u don't", she said. Also, Hadid insisted that she is not starving herself or eating less.
