Zoe Saldana Reveals Struggle With Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Diagnosis In The Edit & Joins These Other Stars Battling Autoimmune Diseases

Zoe Saldana isn't alone!

With Star Trek Beyond's promo tour completely underway, it's no surprise Zoe Saldana would be gracing the cover of Net-A-Porter's The Edit!

The Prince-themed issue features the starlet on the front page in a Fendi jumpsuit, but it's inside the weekly glossy that the 38-year-old takes a more serious turn.

She opened up about her battle with Hashimoto's thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease her mother and sisters also struggle with, saying:

"Your body doesn't have the energy it needs to filter toxins, causing it to believe that it has an infection, so it's always inflamed. You create antibodies that attack your glands, so you have to eat clean."

Which is what inspired her and husband Marco Perego Saldana to go completely gluten and dairy-free. She continued:

"I had a great time in my twenties. Then your doctor says you're losing calcium in your bones. What the f*ck is that?! I would hear those conversations with my mom and grandma, thinking I'd never get there. 'I'm going to live forever!' But all of a sudden it hits you. I sh*t you not, it's from night to day."

The momma of twins has previously spoken about issues with her thyroid while talking about her post-baby body, but this is the first time she's talked about her autoimmune diagnosis!

Hopefully with such a great support system, Zoe can continue to fight the disease!
