Kris Aquino Gives New Health Update, Reveals Possible 5th Disease

Kris Aquino returned to social media this week to give worried fans and friends an update on the current state of her health as she seeks treatment in Houston, Texas.

In a post, the actress-talk show host opened up about the struggles she faces every day with persistent fatigue and body pains but draws strength from her love for her two sons, Joshua and Bimby.

“There have been times I wanted to give up because of fatigue & being forever bedridden; the bruises all over my body that suddenly appear; my inability (since February) to tolerate solid food; headaches; bone-deep pain in my spine, knees, joints in my fingers; and my constant flares [especially] in my face that just keep getting worse… BUT I remind myself Kuya & Bimb still need me & mahiya naman ako sa lahat ng mga patuloy na nagdarasal para gumanda ang kalusugan ko (I would be feel embarrassed by how many people are still praying for my recovery) if I just give up,” she said on her post.

She then called herself “blessed” to have been given the means to move to another state to undergo more tests and visit other specialists, as well as to finally begin her immunosuppressant therapy.

Kris left the Philippines having been diagnosed with three autoimmune conditions—namely, autoimmune thyroiditis, chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU), and Churg Strauss syndrome, aka EGPA—and was further diagnosed with a fourth upon arriving in Houston. Now, it seems that she may possibly have a fifth disease. “Unfortunately all my physical manifestations are pointing to a possible 5th. Opo, pinakyaw ko na! (Yes, I got them all!)” she added.
