Singer Gary Valenciano on Thursday, October 7, revealed that he was hospitalized due to dengue fever, and is now recovering.
Gary, who is dubbed local showbiz's "Mr. Pure Energy", had been confined for three days, according to his recent post on Instagram.
"I just wanted to share the goodness of the Lord with all of you. I’ve been here in the hospital since Mon PM due to dengue fever. But He took care of me yet again and now I’m headed home. The Lord has left me speechless once again. I love You Jesus!" he said.
Among those who expressed their concern for the veteran entertainer included Iza Calzado, Ogie Alcasid, Julia Anne San Jose, Kitkat, Gab Pangilinan, and Bernadette Sembrano.
Just last February, Gary had his fans worried after he shared that his sugar level was "dangerously high."
"Although I’ve taken the right steps to bring it back to normal, it’s not easy having it this high," he said in a tweet.
Thankfully, his sugar level returned to normal the next day, and Gary said he was already feeling much better.
"Thanks to all who showed concern. Sugar was at 104 a while ago and that’s perfect,” he said at the time.
“Fellow diabetics, type 1 or 2, please never stop taking care of yourselves k? God bless you all. Thanks again everyone,” he added.
Gary, 57, has been battling Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes for most of his life. In 2005, he almost went into a coma after having a hypoglycemic attack during a show.
In May 2018, the Kapamilya singer underwent an emergency open-heart surgery after a series of tests revealed that his left anterior descending artery was blocked because of diabetes.
A month later, in June, Gary underwent another surgery after doctors found that he had cancer in his right kidney. He was declared cancer-free in July 2019.
