Kris Aquino's allergies complicate treatment for lupus

MANILA, Philippines — In the midst of the controversy surrounding her and former business partner Nicko Falcis, Kris Aquino has revealed that she is battling a “form of lupus.”

In a Facebook Live video, Kris admitted that she’s allergic to every single medicine that can cure her.

"Ang inamin ko po sa inyo was the chronic spontaneous urticaria and that is true. I did not want to specify, because my attorney told me na huwag ko sabihin iyong mga allergies kasi pinapadali mo for your enemies to kill you," Kris said.

"But now I can tell you the truth, I'm allergic to every single medicine that can cure you or at least manage your symptoms kung may lupus ka. All my doctors are doing now is delaying it. They're delaying the inevitable," she added. 

It can be recalled that Kris was travelling from the Philippines to Singapore last September when when she updated her fans regarding her health status via Instagram. 

"This is the truth. September 27 hindi maganda talaga iyong blood test dito sa Pilipinas. Bakit nag-apura na September 29 lumipad na sa Singapore? Bakit October 2 pumunta na sa isang allergy specialist, rheumatoid specialist and immunologist? Because here in the Philippines lumabas...” she said. 

“I'm sure maraming doctor, or mga nurse, and those in the medical profession who know when your ANA (antinuclear antibody) titer count is high that's already a sign of a form of lupus," she added.

Kris added that she doesn’t want the public to pity her as she just wants to live for her sons Joshua and Bimby.

"Hindi ako humihingi ng awa sa inyo because God has been good to me. Pero nanay ako eh, I just want to be alive for the two," she said.

Kris said she also suffers from a thyroid condition, hypertension and fibromyalgia - a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body.
