After breaking off her engagement to former Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) secretary and Calbayog City mayor Mel Sarmiento last month, Kris Aquino gave another update on her health in a social media post last February 23. The 51-year-old actress and host was first diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria in 2018 and has been battling the condition up to now.
In her latest post, Kris shared a short video of herself getting a blood extraction where she requested for 10 vials of her blood be taken for further tests. Kris also shared, “I am now 86 pounds (39 kilos).”
Last year, Kris alarmed fans when she first started uploading photos showing her drastic weight loss. Kris shared that her vital organs are in good health and there was no cancer found in her body.
She wrote, “I spent the whole afternoon here in our unit in consultation with 2 young doctors—for their privacy I won’t name them—they are sisters in law who are both allergy specialists… marami akong health problems at present but para ma confirm how serious they are, kailangan unahin namin yung pinaka malaking hadlang, my allergies and my chronic urticaria. Hindi kasi alam how I’ll react to the dyes needed for tests like CT SCAN, MRI, and lahat ng may -gram sa ending.
F”or us na lang yung autoimmune + other health issues ko, better for me to FOCUS on what’s GOOD: cancer is ruled out, kidney function is okay, sugar is fine (meaning no diabetes), and so far liver function is okay considering all my maintenance meds.”
Kris also requested for her followers to not just pray for her but also for her loved ones. “Thank you for all your prayers & kind well wishes, but let’s continue praying not just for me BUT for all my loved ones: my family—my sisters, brothers-in-law, mga pamangkin and PLEASE, my 2 sons, Kuya Josh & Bimb. Please pray also for my closest cousins & my trusted friends from all colors of the 🌈and my exceptionally loyal Doctors, my nurse, and my TEAM @home who worry, and do everything possible to keep me safe & Covid free…”
Before ending her post, Kris revealed her plans to go abroad for a few months to seek mediacal treatment. “We just finished this blood test 30 minutes ago to see kung viable candidate ako for the treatment I want to try, before we go abroad. Thank you, Jessica—my favorite med tech from St. Luke’s BGC.
“Sobrang daming dapat ma THANK YOU but aangal kayo na ang haba ng caption ko. So for now, God bless us 😇, Good Night😴 & #lovelovelove.💛💛💛🇵🇭”
Last February 14, Kris requested for prayers instead of gifts for her 51st birthday this year.
