Pia Wurtzbach shared a health update on social media on Tuesday, July 13, revealing that she recently found out that she has high cholesterol.
On her Instagram Stories, the Miss Universe 2015 shared, "Starting the day with a good workout. Akalain mo yun mataas daw cholesterol ko kaya eto double time na sa pag seseryoso. Kahit naman anong itsura mo sa panlabas e kung mataas cholesterol mo pano na.”
Pia remarked that a consistent workout routine is really key to a healthy body.
"I learned that consistency is key sa pagiging healthy. Hindi phases, hindi taas baba, dapat lifestyle na talaga siya," she said.
She also shared that just last year, she discovered that she is lactose intolerant.
"Ang tagal kong [tina-try] ifigure out kung bakit laging namimilipit ako sa sakit tuwing umiinom ng kape. Yung milk pala. Sayang kasi love na love ko kumain ng dairy products lalo na ng cheeses but oh well. Kung ayaw na ng katawan mo ganon talaga haha," she said.
Pia said that she was sharing the health updates because she wants to make people aware that one can't judge the state of one's health in one's physique only.
"I'm sharing this to let you guys know na minsan wala talaga sa panlabas na itsura yung kalagayan ng katawan mo. Listen to your body, make the necessary changes and your health will improve. Some [of] these challenges are reversible," she shared.
