Kris Aquino revealed through a Facebook Live broadcast yesterday, January 5, that she is suffering a ‘form of lupus’ and that she is allergic to any cure to the disease.

"Ang inamin ko po sa inyo was the chronic spontaneous urticaria and that is true. I did not want to specify, because my attorney told me na huwag ko sabihin iyong mga allergies kasi pinapadali mo for your enemies to kill you," she said.

Kris recently admitted that she has an autoimmune disease called urticaria.

She added that she is allergic to any medicine that could cure lupus.

"But now I can tell you the truth, I'm allergic to every single medicine that can cure you or at least manage your symptoms kung may lupus ka. All my doctors are doing now is delaying it. They're delaying the inevitable,” she shared.

Kris has always been vocal in her previous posts that all she wanted is to see her son Bimby turn 18 and by then, he would be ready to take care of his elder brother Joshua, too.

"We had been so careful about what would be revealed,” she said.

“This is the truth. September 27 hindi maganda talaga iyong blood test dito sa Pilipinas. Bakit nag-apura na September 29 lumipad na sa Singapore? Bakit October 2 pumunta na sa isang allergy specialist, rheumatoid specialist and immunologist? Because here in the Philippines lumabas… I'm sure maraming doctor, or mga nurse, and those in the medical profession who know when your ANA (antinuclear antibody) titer count is high that's already a sign of a form of lupus."

Kris is also extremely allergic to the ‘environment’ and gave the trees as an example.

"Hindi ako humihingi ng awa sa inyo because God has been good to me. Pero nanay ako eh, I just want to be alive for the two,” she said.
