Kris Aquino Bravely Shares The Effects of Her Autoimmune Condition

“Being in a relationship with Kris Aquino, means to be in a relationship with the public.” We can never forget the Queen of All Media quoting this in one of her interviews with Boy Abunda. And true enough, Kris Aquino has really managed to be consistently relevant, and a hot topic of showbiz news.

From her failed attempts at love with Joey Marquez, to her new born child with James Yap, even to her annulment with the professional basketball player, everyone gets a glimpse of what it is like in a day of a Kris Aquino.

A couple of years back, we have been informed that her and Quezon City Mayor Herbert “Bistek” Bautista have been going on dates and were actually seeing each other. Kris seemed very inspired during the time and has been sharing her happiness to the public.

However, things turned sour between them in what appeared as a mutual decision. While fans and followers of the “KrisTek” tandem were sad about the news, we were all surprised by the turn of events just a couple of weeks ago. In an Instagram post, Kris shared a photo wherein she and Herbert can be seen having dinner together along with a couple of friends.

Kris then was quick to explain that they have remained friends even during the split up and that Herbert has been there for her ever since. She mentions Bistek has consistently consoled her especially with the recent news of Kris being sc4mmed by her business partners.

Apart from the stressful business hullaballoo, Kris is once again going through another trial in her life as she was diagnosed with Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria, an autoimmune condition.

“My Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria afflicts less than 1% of the world’s population. Most suffer through it for 1-5 years. Some suffer through it for decades- I fall under that category,” she captioned her Instagram post.

The diagnosis came after she had sought medical help in top institutions in Singapore. It revealed that the stress she was going through had a big effect to trigger this condition. Kris also adds that while stress is a factor, eating a healthier diet plan would contribute greatly into her well-being.

This is my story. My urticaria flares started in 2013, but i thought they were allergic reactions & called them hives. They’ve steadily worsened to about 2 bad episodes a month lasting at least 4 to 7 days. I have no food allergies except crab & lobster (based on my 🇸🇬 full allergy test)… What happens when you suffer from an autoimmune disease? I researched in healthline.com so i could easily explain it since i have so many doctors who are now friends that i unknowingly use medical terms. The immune system mistakes part of your body — like your joints or skin — as foreign. It releases proteins called autoantibodies that attack healthy cells. Women get autoimmune diseases at a rate of about 2 to 1 compared to men — 6.4 percent of women vs. 2.7 percent of men. Often the disease starts during a woman’s childbearing years (ages 14 to 44). My Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria afflicts less than 1% of the world’s population. Most suffer through it for 1-5 years. Some suffer through it for decades- i fall under that category… i found my doctor here, Dr. Geraldine Zamora through @trishaduncan who had done an @everbilenaofficial @krislifekit webisode w/ me. She introduced me to the head of their Asean Doctors group. He is an allergy, rhueumatoid, and immunology specialist. He’s the 1 we flew to Singapore to consult… Dr. Geraldine has been so patient answering all my concerns & helping explain my diagnosis… i believe everything happens as part of God’s plan for our lives. i have the platforms to raise awareness about this medical challenge… Stress we cannot avoid, but it is a big factor. A healthier food plan with vegetables (except alfalfa sprouts), fruits, fiber rich food, oatmeal, lean cuts of beef (for iron & vitamin D which are depleted), beans (thank God i like garbanzos), and fatty fish are all helpful. And very importantly, she advised to be in bed by 9:30 PM & sleeping soundly at 11 PM. Sorry i’m going over my prescribed bedtime, but i edited this video myself. Thank you to all who messaged me w/ love & prayers… Good night. Yes, i’m starting to SMILE from my heart again.🌈❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

A lot of people love the Queen of All Media and we can only hope for her fast recovery from this condition. And while we’ll definitely miss seeing her as frequent, we can only hope that she gets better soon so we can continue watching her web shows.
