Ashton Kutcher has revealed additional details about his fight against the existence of the autoimmune condition vasculitis, and he has commended his wife, Mila Kunis, for her supporting role. During his appearance on the brand new series The Checkup with Dr. David Agus, which airs on Paramount+, Ashton revealed that he is “near” to regaining normal eyesight and hearing.
In November 2019, Ashton was given a diagnosis in private with an extremely uncommon form of vasculitis.
“I woke up one morning and noticed that I was having trouble seeing, and it was quite blurry. I lost my hearing, which led to problems with my equilibrium and balance; as a result, I was unable to walk, and I had vasculitis “The actor, who is 44 years old, recalled something to Agus, who is his physician.
According to the Mayo Clinic, vascularity is an inflammation of the blood arteries. The condition may be temporary or it may last for a longer period of time. Following his battle with the serious disease, Ashton stated that he was inspired “to restore the health” he had previously had.
“A portion of it is related to the mental preoccupation I have with making a complete recovery after regaining consciousness in the medical facility. I was unable to walk, and I remember thinking, “Wait for a second, if I can go from not being able to walk to running a marathon in a span of three years, then I can let that be a part of the past and be like, I’m back.” So I set a goal for myself to run a marathon three years after I could not walk. I’m good,’ “The actor from That ’70s Show provided some insight. A month ago, he competed in and finished the New York City Marathon.
Ashton Kutcher has stated that gaining an “appreciation for life” at an early age was one of the benefits of watching his twin brother Michael Kutcher “come face to face with mortality.” Michael suffers from cerebral palsy and came dangerously close to passing away as a child after suffering viral myocarditis, which caused his heart to expand. He joined the show later on for a rare joint interview. Both of these events cause Ashton to examine his life through a certain lens and ask himself, “What are you doing today?”
“The values of where I’m spending time, which tends to be with my kids, is probably the largest shift that took place,” Ashton said of the previous three years. “The values of where I’m spending quality time tends to be with my kids.” He and Kunis are parents to their children, Wyatt, age 8, and Dimitri, age 6.
Agus was present during Kutcher’s health emergency three years ago, and in 2019 he stated how incredible it is to see the actor “now compared to what it was.” The doctor informed Ashton’s parents that their son’s vision and hearing have “very nearly returned to normal.”
