LOS ANGELES, Oct. 16 (UPI) -- U.S. reality television personality Melissa Rycroft says she was recently diagnosed with H1N1 flu.

Rycroft is best known for competing on TV's "Dancing with the Stars" and "The Bachelor."

"I am indeed recovering from a bout of the H1N1 flu virus," Rycroft told Usmagazine.com exclusively.

"Like most people who become infected, I thought I had a mild case of the common flu, but when my symptoms exacerbated, I immediately went to the hospital where I was diagnosed with H1N1 and given the proper medications to cure the infection," she explained. "I want to stress to people how easy it is to battle this flu when you take the proper steps such as seeking the care of a doctor. I'm a clear case that by paying diligent attention to your health, it's easy to overcome this illness and be healthy again."
