Jet Li treated for thyroid

BEIJING: Jet Li has said he is being treated for an overactive thyroid, but he’s determined to fight the condition head-on. The Chinese action star, known for his Kung Fu skills, discussed his diagnosis during the taping of a talent show he’s judging in China. In the taping, the 50-year-old Li appeared to have a fuller face and heavier frame. He said his weight has fluctuated but he’s taking it all in stride. Li joked about his weight gain and said: “I’m fat, I don’t have the time to lose it. It’s a fact.”Li was diagnosed in 2010. He kept his condition under control with medication, but it came back with a vengeance recently.–BTG
