Rob Kardashian's recent diabetes diagnosis may have been a "wake up call," but the family isn't planning to take any drastic measures following the health scare.

E! News learns that "there is no planned intervention" for Rob by Kris Jenner and the famous family after doctors revealed that he has type 2 diabetes, despite reports claiming otherwise.

The source tells us, "Rob lives at his own place. He has for a while. And yes he is basically a shut-in, but that's now new. Has been for a long time, that is not news. He doesn't like being seen in public and limits his social life as such."

Furthermore, the insider adds that reports claiming Rob only talks to sister Khloe Kardashian are untrue. "He for sure talks to Kris. And Kendall and Kylie Jenner have no beef. Not sure about others, but they all, I believe, have showed social media love for quite some time."

Rob was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital after not feeling well over the Christmas holiday weekend. Once his condition seemed to worsen, he was taken to the doctor to see what was going on. After performing various tests, doctors concluded that Rob is diabetic.

"He's home already. He went for a little and is fine now. It was a wake up call," a source told E! News at the time. The insider added that Rob's tests revealed his blood sugar levels were very high, and doctors told him that he needs to lose weight, exercise and dramatically change his diet, or it will get worse.

Khloe—who had in mid-December shared a cryptic, moving throwback photo of her and Rob and a message, saying, "If only you could see yourself through my eyes! I'll forever be obsessed with you! My one and only! #MyAce"—posted on her Instagram page shortly after his diagnosis was revealed, with a photo of herself looking, as she put it, "melancholy."

"Rob is such a great guy," Khloe told People magazine in October. "He's charming, charismatic, everything. That's what's so infuriating. I'm like, 'Where is your will to live life? Let's be around people!'"

Ultimately, Rob "has to figure it out for himself," she added. "And he has so many people who want to help him."
