Kris Aquino shared a health update with her fans for the first time since September.

Kris explained why she didn’t put out any information on social media about her current condition, saying she wanted to make sure she had a definite plan for treatment.


“It’s been a few months… I didn’t want to post until I had definite info as my update. 1st THANK YOU for praying for me, for us,” she said. 

The 51-year-old media personality went on to thank various religious groups and sects before she revealed that she will have to undergo more than 18 months of diagnosis and treatment catering to people who have the same condition as hers. 

“It’s step 1 on what will likely be more than 18 months of diagnosis & treatment. I’m signed up in a hospital’s Center for those with Rare & Undiagnosed illnesses. My last set of test results were conflicting; that’s why I chose to have my full diagnosis & treatment with a team of multidisciplinary doctors,” Kris said.

According to Kris, she will be admitted early next year and will go through a series of tests as well. 

“Iba ang process dito. My 1st step was submitting all my medical records from 2018 when my autoimmune was 1st diagnosed in Singapore; I had a teleconsult w/ the assigned doctor-coordinator for me, then we’ll do a video consult in 2 weeks. I’ll be admitted early 2023 to undergo every imaginable test they’ll deem necessary,” she said. 

But it won’t be easy for Kris whose treatment will only be determined after she gets her results. 

“After my results, the team shall decide what treatment will be best because the coordinator admitted I’m a ‘challenge’ since I’m allergic to so many types of medicine including all steroids. Pang case study daw ako- 1 person with multiple autoimmune conditions & over 100 known allergic or adverse reactions to medication,” she said. 

Kris said she can’t leave the US until her application for an extension of stay gets approved. 

“We already filed our papers with US immigration to extend our stay. Bawal umalis ng [US] until the extension is granted. We miss our family & so many of you,” she said. 

Kris explained why she chose to use a photo of Josh and BImby in her post, saying they are the ones who inspire her to keep on fighting. 

“I posted a picture of kuya & bimb- they are my REASONS kung bakit TULOY ANG LABAN, BAWAL SUMUKO,” she said. 

Kris also said she had to endure a lot over the past few months. She said she hasn’t eaten outside or visited a store since June because she is immunocompromised.

“Tinitiis yung matinding sakit (sagad sa buto) while allergic to all pain relievers; the constant fatigue, awful sense of balance, nonstop dry cough & shortness of breath; yung sobrang pag-iingat (I’m so immunocompromised- since June I’ve NEVER been to a restaurant, NEVER entered a store, supermarket, or a mall),” she said. 

Kris ended her post by saying she hopes to spend more time with her kids. “I pray for the blessing to be healthy enough to still be their mama — the one who would cook, travels for fun, goes to Church, and watches movies w/ them. All in God’s perfect time.”
