Influencer Mrs Hinch has taken to Instagram to provide an update on her blood clotting disorder as she shared a photo of extensive bruising on her legs.
Mrs Hinch, whose real name is Sophie Hinchliff, has become a household name after blowing up online with her cleaning and organising tips.
With 4.4 million followers to her name and five best selling books, Mrs Hinch is one of the world’s most popular social media personalities.
Taking to Instagram, Mrs Hinch uploaded a video of large purple bruises on her thighs and told fans why she doesn’t wear dresses often during Summer.
‘Typical that the sun is out and my blood plays up. This is why I wear winter clothes in the summer guys. I get so worried about going out when it’s sunny.
‘My arms are the same too at the moment. Bloody reality eh (excuse the pun),’ she wrote on her story.
The bruises on her arms and legs made fans worried about the health of the 32-year-old, who posted another story to assure them that have nothing to worry about.
‘My inbox has gone a bit mad! Nothing bad has happened. Basically, I have a blood disorder – so my blood clots really easily. I’m always on blood thinners and I have had a blood clot in the past,’ she said.
Admitting that she’s ‘covered in them all the time’, Mrs Hinch said the bruises can arrise when her husband Jamie taps her on the shoulder.
Mrs Hinch suffers from a condition known as Protein S deficiency and Factor V Leiden, which sadly makes her more likely to develop blood clots.
In her book Hinch Yourself Happy, Ms Hinchliff, recalled missing her 2018 honeymoon after developing a serious blood clot in her leg.
‘I was so scared I was going to lose my leg. I am now on blood thinners for life but I was so lucky with the brilliant treatment I received and I feel incredibly blessed,’ she wrote.
