Wendy Williams Has Been Diagnosed With Dementia & Asphasia

It has been reported that TV Host Wendy Williams has been diagnosed with  primary progressive aphasia and frontotemporal dementia (FTD). The news had been reported by her medical team in a statement where they said:

“In 2023, after undergoing a battery of medical tests, Wendy was officially diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia and¬†frontotemporal dementia (FTD). Aphasia, a condition affecting language and communication abilities, and frontotemporal dementia, a progressive disorder impacting behavior and cognitive functions, have already presented significant hurdles in Wendy’s life,” the statement read.

It continues, “The decision to share this news was difficult and made after careful consideration, not only to advocate for understanding and compassion for Wendy, but to raise awareness about aphasia and¬†frontotemporal dementia and support the thousands of others facing similar circumstances. Unfortunately, many individuals diagnosed with aphasia and frontotemporal dementia face stigma and misunderstanding, particularly when they begin to exhibit behavioral changes but have not yet received a diagnosis.”

This adds on to the other ongoing health issues such as Graves’ disease and lymphedema. She has since been in a treatment facility since April 2023.
