Kris Aquino suffers from Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria Disease


The Queen of all media Kris Aquino shared a video in her Instagram account on October 11 showing her current battle with Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria (CSU) that affects her life the most. 

She explained,"The immune system mistakes part of your body-like your joints or skin - as foreign. It releases proteins called autoantibodies that attack healthy cells."



"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 added.

The video shows bruising and swelling all over her body, with come marks resembling rashes. "My urticaria 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," written in her post.




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 πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬ 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.🌈❤️πŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ
