Kim Jong-un ‘may be suffering ROID RAGE after steroid treatment for crippling gout
Cheese-chomping tyrant Kim Jong-un may be suffering from ROID RAGE because of the treatment he takes to deal with his chronic gout, doctors have revealed.
Medical experts believe the diagnosis could help explain why the trigger-happy dictator has pushed the world to the brink of war in recent weeks.
There’s widespread speculation “in the medical community that he has gout, and one of the treatments for gout is steroids,” Dr. Rock Positano of the Hospital for Special Surgery told PageSix.com. “This fellow could be manifesting roid rage.”
Steroids, which can make people irritable, irrational and particularly aggressive, is a common treatment for the crippling condition.
Gout is a buildup of uric acid in joints, particularly the feet, which causes acute pain “like a knife going through your toe,” Positano said.
The tubby dictator has reportedly become hooked on Emmental and posh French red wine and has downed so much that he has ballooned in size and is now walking with a limp because of his condition.
The crackpot fell in love with the cheese when a student in Switzerland and now imports it for his own consumption, while millions of his citizens starve.
Cheese and red wine are known to be major causes of gout and it’s feared his reaction to his treatment may even spark World War Three.
