Kris Aquino has shared with her fans about her illness, now “life-threatening.”

On Instagram, Kris revealed that she has three autoimmune conditions.

“Pasensya na, hindi po ako sigurado if my video made sense. Mula end of April, we found out life threatening na yung illness ko,” she wrote.

“Kayo na lang please ang mag research- 3 ang confirmed autoimmune conditions ko: chronic spontaneous urticaria, autoimmune thyroiditis, and definitively confirmed after my 3rd skin biopsy was read by a pathologist here & in the (USA flag emoji) – meron po akong vasculitis, to be very specific – late stage 3 of Churg Strauss Syndrome now also known as EGPA.”

Kris said her team of doctors in the Philippines and abroad has been closely consulting with a Filipino-American doctor and his team in Houston, Texas about her condition.

“Here the majority of my doctors practice in St Luke’s BGC and/or Makati Medical Center except my neurologist who has clinics in Asian, Perpetual & Medical City. They are all worried about organ damage in my heart & in my lungs. Kaya lahat ng paraan sinubukan for me to get to Houston soonest. Yung gamot that God willing can help save me doesn’t have FDA approval here or in Singapore & isasabay na po mag infuse ng chemotherapy as my immunosuppressant. Why? Allergic po ako sa lahat ng steroids.”

In the video, Kris said that she will fly abroad on May 19.

She also slammed fake news spreaders about her health status.

“I’m not yet dead. I’m going to fight to stay alive.”
