KIM Kardashian West may have gestational diabetes.

The reality TV star, who is expecting her second child with her husband Kanye West in December, has been told by doctors she could be battling with the pregnancy condition.

Speaking to her mother Kris Jenner and eldest sister Kourtney Kardashian during a promotional clip for their reality TV show, 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians,' she said: "They [the doctors] saw more fluid than usual in my placenta, which can mean I have diabetes."

But that wasn't the only thing the 34-year-old beauty had to come to terms with during her routine ultrasound as she was also told she could be at risk from pre-eclampsia again.

Kim suffered with the life-threatening condition, which is usually characterised by high blood pressure, during her first pregnancy with her daughter North, now two, which ultimately led to her going into premature labour.

She told her worried family: "Once you have pre-eclampsia you are at risk of having it again."

Meanwhile, Kim recently described pregnancy as the "worst experience" of her life but admitted it is worth it in the end.

Writing on her website, she said: "For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL! I don't enjoy one moment of it and I don't understand people who enjoy it.

"Maybe it's the swelling, the backaches or just the complete mindf**k of how your body expands and nothing fits. I just always feel like I'm not in my own skin.

"People just don't tell you all of the gross things that happen during pregnancy or after. Do you know you basically have to wear a diaper for two months afterwards! LOL! No one told me that! #SoSexy (sic)."
