Actress-Princess Shyngle has an enviable body but for what price did she achieve those curves?
A few months ago, GhanaCelebrities.Com published an article looking at the negative effects of the now popular waist trainer usage—which is being promoted by certain Ghanaian Celebrities as alternative ways of losing tummy fat and re-shaping the body.
Perhaps, there’s a connection between Princess Shyngle’s waist trainer usage and her now kidney disease, which she announced yesterday—and says she is receiving treatment.
Princess Shyngle, who is also a writer and producer, posted three images on Instagram on Friday showing her arm hooked up to an intravenous drip.
The 24-year-old, who previously credited the trainers for her curvaceous figure, captioned the post: ‘Hospital bound… Kidney disease healing mercies oh Lord need your prayers ya’ll.’
Princess Shyngle’s story has made it onto MailOnline—and the website says;
[Princess Shyngl] illness comes as doctors warned that waist trainers, or corsets that women wear to achieve a smaller waist, can cause damage to internal organs.
Dr Galyna Selezneva, an aesthetic medical doctor who works at a London-based cosmetic surgery, spoke to MailOnline about the problems that can be associated with waist training, including changes to the ribs, bone structure and inner organ positions.
She said: ‘If someone gets addicted to wearing a waist trainer day after day the inner organs will shift.
‘There will be a disbalance in the cavity as it is not normal to have such as small waist.
‘There can also be changes to the ribs and bone structures. Obviously if you are wearing them repeatedly, you are not exercising the muscles so they are also wasting.’
Dr Galyna also added that kidney disease can cover a variety of illness including kidney stones, which would not be down to waist trainers.
Peter Lemon, an expert personal trainer, also previously told the Irish Examiner: ‘Waist training can have some serious health risks due to compression – such as skin infections, pulmonary problems, kidney issues and lung issues.’
