Television host-actress Kris Aquino, known as the Philippines' queen of all media, recently shared a new health update, disclosing "abnormalities" in her blood panel and plans to undergo iron infusions.
The star reached out for prayers in a detailed Instagram post. Aquino has been in the US for over a year, battling life-threatening autoimmune conditions. "There’s something I chose not to reveal but I feel I must. There were some abnormalities in my blood panel. My haemoglobin hit an all time low, my sodium was as always low, BUT my potassium also dropped. If I want to get healthier it starts with my nutrition. Hindi ko kaya ang iron supplements. Starting next week, I'll be getting iron infusions," Aquino wrote in the post.
"My Churg Strauss syndrome can affect many organs because it causes damage to blood vessels. My lungs have already shown some minor damage, but my now heart is showing signs of exhaustion — just to pump blood that lacks nutrients all over my body, kailangan mag-overcompensate," she added.
Through her Instagram, she has been sharing her health journey, seeking support and prayers from her fans.
