(Pool/CNN) - Modern Family star Sarah Hyland told her Instagram followers that she is not anorexic.

Speculation about the 26-year-old actress suffering an eating disorder surfaced after she posted a photo of herself looking thin.

Hyland said she has been battling health issues and is not happy about being so skinny.

She was not specific about what those issues are but she says she's on bed rest and taking medication that makes her face swell.

Hyland battled kidney dysplasia in the past and had a kidney transplant in 2012.

The celeb pointed out the irony of the photo that prompted the claims.

She posted it to promote an anti-bullying campaign.

The ABC network renewed Modern Family to return for a ninth and tenth season earlier this month.
