August Alsina Illness – What Is Autoimmune Liver Disease? Health Update 2022

In 2017, August Alsina shared that he suffers from a severe autoimmune disease that attacks his liver. The genetic condition has led to several incidents, including a collapse on stage in 2014.

He revealed his illness in a 2017 episode of Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett Smith, with whom he was controversially “entangled.” 

He clarified that his family has a history of autoimmune disease. The singer of Song Cry said in the video: “My dad’s mother and sister revealed that sickness and disease run in my family after we sat down and spoke. Both my grandfather and father passed away from serious illnesses.”

He offered additional health updates on July 8, 2019. The rapper explained why he was hospitalized in a video he released on Instagram, saying it was due to a loss of movement.

“We’re doing a bunch of tests, & they’re saying I have some nerve damage going on throughout my body,” he said.

Genetic liver conditions include alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT) deficiency, hemochromatosis, and Wilson disease. One suffers from these due to insufficient AAT protein, excessive iron, or a build-up of copper, respectively.

These diseases can cause several complications not only in the liver but also in other organs. The symptoms can include fatigue, abdominal pain, joint pain, loss of libido, fibrosis, and cirrhosis.

His ailing health might be why on September 20, 2021, Alsina announced that his latest project would likely be his “last,” hinting that he was retiring.
