After due medical checkups and tests, he was diagnosed with adrenal failure, as his adrenal glands did not produce enough of the adrenal hormone (cortisone). So, he was given some medications to supplement the insufficient hormone. He was also put under observation until he improved, became normal and restored his natural skin color.​
