In the cover interview for the November issue of Health magazineVictoria Justice revealed that she has Hashimoto's disease, a thyroid autoimmune disorder which often causes acne and weight fluctuations. 

"All my life I've always had great skin," she told the magazine. "So it was really devastating." 

The 5'5" actress revealed that she has also struggled with extreme weight fluctuations. "At first, I was losing a lot of weight, then I went on tour and I started gaining weight," she said. "I was like, 115 pounds. Then when I filmed a movie last summer, I actually went under 100 pounds. BUt things have leveled out, and I'm back to normal."

The skin and weight fluctuations took their toll on her self-confidence, but Justice found comfort in her family and friends. "I knew that the people around me had my back," she said. "Now I really empathize with people who have issues with their skin, because it can get you down."
