Miss International Bea Rose Santiago made a big revelation on social media on Saturday, August 4. The beauty queen admitted that she has been diagnosed with a chronic kidney disease.
The beauty queen went to St. Luke's Medical Center on August 1 because of "severe migraine" but later found out that it was something more critical.
"Yes, I'm sick. Since I damaged my kidneys when I was younger. My kidneys are more sensitive than a normal later 20s healthy woman. I can't overdo things and I just found out. Came to the hospital with my severe migraines and we found out something potentially more dangerous. I'm thankful but at the same time really scared," she wrote.
Bea also posted a reminder for those who go to the gym. She said that heavy workouts damage the kidneys.
"Guys, if you take pre workout and other heavy workout, please be careful! Apparently there are many more like me. We damage our kidneys because of our gym life. Before you do or change your diet or drink something make sure you don't have bad health history problems! Always ask your doctors!," she posted.
