Hyland has often shared her health issues with fans, including her kidney dysplasia diagnosis. In December 2018, she revealed that she had a second kidney transplant after her body rejected the first donor kidney. The next month, she shared on an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that her health struggles prompted suicidal thoughts.
“At the time I was 26, but after 26, 27 years of just always being sick and being in chronic pain every single day and you don’t know when you’re going to have the next good day, it’s really, really hard,” Hyland told DeGeneres. "I would write letters in my head to loved ones of why I did it and my reasoning behind it, how it was nobody’s fault. I didn’t want to write it down on paper because I didn’t want anybody to find it. That’s how serious I was.”
Hyland said she was “very, very, very close” to taking her own life. "It ended up being myself that got me out of that,” she revealed. "I had to do it on my own. I told myself I had to do it on my own.”
