Keke Palmer has opened up to her followers on Instagram about her experience with PCOS, and people are praising the star for her honesty...

The actress wanted to help others who might be facing the same problems.

Her fans are loving her fresh approach to the condition, something that isn't usually talked about by celebrities.

Keke posted a note on Instagram about her recent diagnosis, and how long it has taken her to get there.

1 in 10 women suffer from PCOS, with acne and weight gain being just some of the side effects. Although Keke told her followers they "don’t have to accept this" and shouldn't be "afraid to show [themselves] to the world."

She wrote this:

“Hey you guys, for some of you this may be TMI, but for me my platform has always been used for things much greater than me."

"Poly Cystic Ovarian syndrome has been attacking me from the inside out my entire life and I had no idea."

"My acne has been so bad that people in my field offered to pay for me to get it fixed. I tried EVERYTHING. I did Accutane TWICE. People say drink water, have a better diet, but I did all that, I ate all the ‘right’ things, my blood tests were fine."

"It took ME taking a personal look into my family that has a history of diabetes and obesity, to understand what was ACTUALLY happening with me."

Keke resorted to figuring out her own diagnosis, as doctors couldn't tell her what was wrong.

"Unfortunately doctors are people and if you don’t ‘look the part’ they may not think that’s your problem," she explained.

"They may not even suggest it if you ‘look healthy’ whatever that means! I came to a doctor in tears once and all they offered was a measles vaccine… Exactly."

"I’m posting this to say that it’s okay and we can help ourselves."

"My skin has made me sad many nights but I do not give up on myself. I know this is not me and my body has been looking for help."

She continued...

"I do not have a medical degree but I did the research and took what I learned to a doctor and that led them to a proper diagnosis."

"I’m not saying trust WebMD for everything haha but what I am saying is no one can help us like we can help ourselves."

"This especially makes me sad because my family struggled for years and no doctor could help them, they actually mislead them and just took their money."

"It’s only because of what my family sacrificed that allows me to even have the resources to share the information I’m sharing with you!"

Their fight out of poverty gave me a better life and I just want to share what I learn."

Keke finished her message by addressing her followers with PCOS and encouraging them to love themselves as they are.

"The least harmful thing PCOS can bring is acne," she wrote. "To all the people struggling with this please know you’re not alone and that you are still so fucking fine! MY ACNE AIN'T NEVER STOPPED ME."

"But we don’t have accept this... Pray for me on this journey and I will pray for you too. I’m not afraid to show myself to the world and you shouldn’t be either ❤️"
