Ashton Kutcher Rare Autoimmune Disease


Ashton Kutcher has revealed that he is "lucky to be alive" after battling a rare autoimmune disorder.

During a sneak peek at an upcoming episode of National Geographic's Running Wild with Bear Grylls.

Actor Ashton Kutcher opened up about his battle with a rare condition that prohibited his ability to walk, see or hear.

Kutcher revealed: "Like two years ago, I had this weird, super rare form of vasculitis that knocked out my vision, my hearing, it knocked out like all my equilibrium."

"It took me like a year to build it all back up. You do not appreciate it until it has gone."

"Until you go, I do not know if I will ever be able to see you again. I do not know if I will ever be able to hear again."

"I do not know if I am ever going to be able to walk again."

According to MayoClinic, vasculitis is an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation of the blood vessels.

This can cause them to be narrow, restricting blood flow and damaging organs and tissues.

Symptoms may include weakness in hands and feet, loss of hearing, or temporary blindness.

Kutcher added that he is "lucky to be alive" and has used the scare as a learning experience.

"The minute you start seeing your obstacles as things made for you, to give you what you need, then life starts to get fun, right?"

"You start surfing on top of your problems instead of living underneath them."
