Sarah Hyland is ''very proud'' of her weight gain.

The 'Modern Family' actress has struggled with her body in the past, as she suffers with kidney dysplasia - which is where one or both of the kidneys fail to develop properly, and cysts grow instead of normal tissue - which makes her body skinner than average.

And after dropping down to a thin 75lbs earlier this year, Sarah has admitted she's pleased to be able to put some weight back on.

Posting a picture of herself in the gym on her Instagram story on Friday (03.08.18), Sarah wrote: ''Reallllllly did NOT want to come in today. But I'm very glad I diiiiid. Stay strong out there ladies!!! Every workout counts

''Very proud of this seeing as I was 75 lbs earlier this year (sic)''

The 27-year-old star's slim figure has made her the target for Internet trolls, and she recently took to social media to slam critics who have claimed she isn't getting enough carbs in her diet.

She said: ''I've been reading some of your DMs and so many of you are like, 'Girl, you fine but like, eat some bread!' So I would like to put in a request for anyone who is concerned about my bread consumption to send to Wells Adam, because he is the sole person who knows about how much bread I consume on a daily basis. Thanks! Love you, mean it, Ok bye.''

And earlier this year, she revealed she refuses to be body shamed.

She said: ''For me it's just kind of like a natural reaction [to speak out]. And sometimes it gets too much to where I'm like, okay, I really need to make a statement right now because what is happening is not okay. And it happens all the time. People think that because you're in the public eye you sign up for criticism from random people and strangers. But I'm in this business because I love the craft, and I love the art of it, and I love creating and evoking emotions out of people.''
