Defensive position regarding GPA in SOP

Hi everyone!

So I was confused about whether I should explain my low GPA is SOP. I really suck at standardized tests and I had some issues in life earlier, health problems specifically, so I have low gpa (3.3). One of my recommenders will write that I can cope with graduate coursework (I took grad course with this prof), so I thought about skipping a pitty part about having health issues. What do you think?
