Gaga Tests 'Borderline Positive' For Lupus
LADY GAGA is taking extra precautions to ensure she's healthy after learning she tested "borderline positive" for lupus.
The Bad Romance star underwent testing for lupus, the affliction which killed her aunt Joanne, after a string of health problems in recent months, including breathing difficulties, stress and headaches.
Her results showed she is not currently suffering from the condition but doctors have ordered the singer to look after her body to prevent any symptoms flaring up.
In a pre-recorded chat with U.S. talk show host Larry King, Gaga explains, "Lupus is in my family and it is genetic. My mother told me the other day that my fans were quite worried about me because I did talk about the fact that I was tested for lupus. The truth is I don't show any signs, any symptoms of lupus. But I have tested borderline positive for the disease.
"As of right now I do not have it, but I have to take good care of myself."
King's interview with Gaga will be broadcast in the U.S. on Tuesday (01Jun10).
