“Recently, Wendy has been dealing with symptoms from her Graves’ disease which is causing fatigue,” a statement from Williams’ Twitter account said on Monday.
Williams has been producing new episodes of The Wendy Williams Show from her home amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 55-year-old was diagnosed with Graves’ disease in February 2018. She has taken time off from her show in the past due to the disease.
Graves’ disease is an autoimmune disorder affecting the thyroid.
