    10th July 2024 – (Hong Kong) Hong Kong actor Chin Siu-ho recently sparked concern among fans and netizens with his noticeably emaciated and aged appearance during a fan meeting. Speculations about his health quickly circulated online, prompting Chin Siu-ho to address the situation in a recent media interview. The actor personally divulged details about his health condition, revealing that he currently weighs only 140 pounds, a staggering 40-pound drop from his peak weight. Additionally, he disclosed that his recurring waist ailment has caused stiffness in his movements.

    It has come to light that Chin Siu-ho had previously contracted COVID-19 on two separate occasions. During his first isolation period at a hotel in Shanghai, he was provided with only frozen buns and eggs for breakfast, resulting in a decreased appetite. Presently, his diet mainly consists of soups and congee, with even his favourite wonton noodles being consumed sparingly. The actor expressed his lack of interest in seeking weight gain methods.

    Regarding his overall health condition, Chin Siu-ho denied any issues with uncontrolled diabetes. However, he did mention slightly elevated levels of cholesterol and blood pressure. A recent body check-up revealed the presence of two colonic polyps, Helicobacter pylori infection in the stomach, and mild glaucoma. Responding to speculations about his shaved head being a consequence of cancer, Chin Siu-ho clarified that it was a precautionary measure. His hairstylist had noticed dark spots on his scalp, prompting a decision to shave his head for tissue testing. Fortunately, it turned out to be a false alarm.
