Evaristo Costa, 47 years old, answered questions from his followers on Instagram, this Friday, the 1st, and updated his health status after being hospitalized for complications related to Crohn’s Disease, a serious inflammatory disease of the gastrointestinal tract. He is undergoing treatment in England, where he currently lives.

The journalist, who is spending a few days in Brazil, opened his question box in Stories and was asked by fans about his recovery process. The former presenter of “Newspaper Today” (TV Globo) said that he continues to take medication and undergo tests so that doctors can evaluate the best treatment for his case.

“Everything is fine now! I’m still taking corticosteroids before starting specific treatment. I am still undergoing medical appointments and exams. I am medicated and awaiting the experts’ conclusion on the best treatment to follow,” he explained.

The communicator clarified that he has no dietary restrictions, but said that, by choice, he avoids various types of food. When asked if anyone else in his family has the disease, Evaristo replied no.

In January of this year, the journalist was hospitalized to treat the disease after suffering a crisis. At the time, he reported that he started to have symptoms due to low immunity.

“Low immunity leaves my body open for viruses and bacteria to enter, as happened to my leg a month ago. If I don’t take care of myself, I could have complications such as anemia and serious infections”, he explained.
