What in the world is going on with Todd Chrisley? In a sneak peek at Season 7 of Chrisley Knows Best, the family patriarch is once again freaking out about his health after an eventful doctor’s visit.
"My testosterone is low," the colorful reality star tells his wife, Julie, who shrugs off the news. Unfortunately, Todd’s meltdown is already in full swing. "Do you understand how devastating this diagnosis is?" he asks.
Todd's been instructed to start taking steroids.
In the clip, the 50-year-old reveals he’s been given a prescription for steroids. "When I wake up every morning I still have wood," the never subtle father-of-five loudly declares in the waiting room.
"I don’t actually know what problems I could have from having low testosterone, but I mean, hell, I may have to start sitting down to take a pee," Todd dramatically tells the camera.
Fans are used to seeing the one-time real estate mogul’s medical escapades play out on the USA Network show. Just last season, viewers watched the Georgia native take a particularly uncomfortable trip to the podiatrist.
Todd previously suffered from a case of gout.
After complaining about extreme pain in his right foot, the self-made millionaire finally sought professional help. "When I go to put pressure down on it, it hurts so bad that I really want to cut it off," he shared in a July 2018 episode. "I can't even stand for [Julie] to touch me, and we know there's a problem when that can't happen."
The doctor quickly determined that Todd’s overindulgent lifestyle brought on the attack of gout, which is a form of arthritis. According to the Mayo Clinic, gout occurs when urate crystals accumulate in a joint — often in the joint at the base of the big toe.
When Todd was asked what kind of fluids he drinks in a day, he responded that he typically starts with two sweet teas from McDonald’s followed by three Cokes. In terms of his vegetable consumption, the grandfather admitted that he eats a lot of "french fries and baked potatoes."
Though he was in excruciating pain, Todd seemed pleased to hear that the disease is historically associated with royalty. "Leave it up to me to have a royal disease, because I don't have common diseases," the entrepreneur proudly boasted.
Todd wasn’t as forthcoming about his recent neck issues.
At the beginning of Season 6, fans noticed that Todd was wearing an unusual amount of turtlenecks and he later revealed the reason behind his unconventional clothing choice.
The self-described fashion guru explained that he had been treated for a burst salivary gland, but some social media followers speculated that Todd had actually undergone plastic surgery on his neck given how little he talked about the procedure.
Overall, it sounds like Todd Chrisley needs to take better care of himself for the sake of his family… and his health care provider!
Watch the Season 7 premiere of Chrisley Knows Best on May 28 at 10 p.m. ET on USA.
