Glenn Beck: ‘I’m not Dying’

An update on Glenn Beck‘s health issues: He’s going to be fine.

On his radio show this morning Beck said doctors have ruled out cancer, multiple sclerosis and lupus. But he does have non-diabetic neuropathy — nerve damage which can be brought on by a vitamin B deficiency, trauma or alcoholism. Beck is a recovering alcoholic. Doctors say half of his vocal chords are paralyzed, which could be just a virus.

Beck spent the past four days at the Huntsman Cancer Institute in Utah. “I had two MRIs, two CAT scans and then I was going into the PET scan, and they said ‘we’ve read all of the others we don’t think you have cancer.’”

“I want you to know, I’m not dying,” said Beck.
