The social media star shared a candid post with her 75,000 Instagram followers detailing the side effects of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), coeliac disease, and lactose intolerance as well as food intolerances.

Despite working out six days a week and monitoring her diet carefully, Madden said even she isn't exempt from the uncomfortable by-product of food allergies and conditions.

Coeliacs are unable to digest gluten, while IBS is a large intestine disorder which results in cramping, abdominal pain, diarrohea and constipation. And the Northern Irish model has been keeping her followers up to date with refreshing honesty.

"Reality check .. Not every day am I rocking abs and feeling lean and awesome .. Hormones, bloat, water weight, food intolerances, ibs, all result in days like this, which can last from 1 day to a week or longer." she shared in a lengthy Instagram post.

"Just wanted to share this painful reality, I have learned a lot over the past few months after being diagnosed celiac [sic] and lactose intolerant but every now and again I have foods my tummy hates and well, the darn hormones are something is ladies all have to deal with.

"Hope to be back to normal in a few days..And I think my friends and family are looking forward to me not complaining about it too!"
