The 24-year-old model, who was diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease in 2012, posted a photo of herself on Instagram that was linked to a drop.
Next to the snapshot showing the drop on her arm, Bella wrote: “Living with a few chronic autoimmune diseases = always finding time for my infusions (sic)”
Bella previously admitted that the symptoms of the disease became more aggressive during her adult life.

The brunette beauty – model Gigi Hadid’s younger sister – took to Instagram to repost charts and infographics about Lyme disease shared by Chef Joudie Kalla.
Bella pointed out that she faces nearly 30 common symptoms, including headaches, insomnia, and sensitivity to light.
The model also highlighted anxiety, confusion, joint pain, nausea, and eating disorders as some of the symptoms.
Bella wrote, “Every day I feel at least 10 of these attributes without fail … since I was probably 14, but more aggressively when I turned 18.”
In 2016, Bella admitted that there are days when she “cannot get up” because of the condition.
She said, “There are tough days where you sleep 12 hours, wake up at 11 am and can’t get up, with severe joint pain, brain fog, and anxiety.
“There are many symptoms that cannot be seen from the outside but which bring you to your knees from the inside.”
Bella also admitted that her symptoms had an impact on her work life.
She said, “In the end, I’m definitely done and it will take me a week just to sleep and do nothing.
“When I’m in fashion week, it’s literally just work, and when I’m not working, I sleep – especially during fashion week. I don’t go out so much, I have dinner alone in my hotel room and go to sleep. This is pretty much my fashion week. “
