Former Generations actress Sophie Ndaba-Lichaba was admitted to Morningside Clinic after falling sick at her Joburg house on Wednesday.
Her admission comes after she suffered multiple strokes and was involved in a car accident when she collapsed behind the steering wheel while driving to Welkom from Joburg early this year.
The relative, who did not want to be named, said Ndaba-Lichaba checked in at the clinic after suffering from severe depression and a high sugar level.
“Her COVID-19 test results came back negative but the doctors discovered that she had depression that had shot her sugar levels up. But she is recovering and could be discharged from the clinic anytime,” said the relative.
“You know that I’m diabetic right, so when you are depressed, your sugar level will definitely go up. So when they checked me they discovered that because my sugar level was up, my body was burning a lot of fat. So basically the fat that I take, my body will burn it quickly and that resulted in me losing a lot of weight,” said Sophie.
Sophie Ndaba’s health has deteriorated and she said, “I was driving into Welkom, just from the set of robots in Welkom, I passed out because my sugar level went up as a result of stress and I lost control of my car.”
