Early in the morning, Good Morning America will air a recent interview with Williams that marks her first interview since taking a leave of absence.

During her comeback taping, the talk show host had Dr. Oz come out to discuss her health condition during a Hot Topics segment.

TV personality Wendy Williams poses in the VIP Lounge during the 2017 Global Citizen Festival in Central Park on September 23, 2017 in New York City. "I find that one thing that women have in common across the board is we tend to take care of our children, our parents, our neighbors, before we take care of ourselves".

"Thank you for missing me", she told her audience, who began chanting her name as she walked out on stage (via Entertainment Tonight).

The daytime talk show host also revealed that she had low Vitamin D levels and that her vertigo was negatively impacting her body's equilibrium. "If you have one [hyperthyroidism or Graves' disease] you don't necessarily have to have the other, but I have both, and I was diagnosed with both 19 years ago".

Stating that her health has since become her main concern, Wendy added: 'I'm not doing that anymore. "Reset on how I'm dealing with people in general", she said, getting teary. Wendy revealed symptoms of sleeping difficulties and irritability, symptoms of Graves' Disease - An autoimmune disease, which is one of the most common of all thyroid problems.

"I had missed three doctor's appointments with my endocrinologist".

She added, when asked about how she'd reacted when the doctor told her she'd need to take some time off: "I cried and then I laughed, 'Are you out of your mind?' But it turns out it was the best prescription ever".

'I can't believe that I got up after the commercial break and closed out the show, ' she recalled. "It was just. just a mess going on inside my body".

Robach then asked Williams how she was even able to get herself back up off the floor and finish out the episode. "I will never put anyone else before my own health".

He replied, "Do you want to be swept?"
