Kris Aquino says her disease makes her allergic to everything
MANILA, Philippines — Queen of All Media Kris Aquino has an autoimmune disease that makes her allergic to everything in the environment.
At first, she was afraid she might be suffering from lupus, which was why she went to Singapore for a more thorough medical evaluation.
“Because here in the Philippines, lumabas, I’m sure maraming doctor or mga nurse at mga those who are in the medical profession who know that when your ANA [antinuclear antibody] count is high that is already a sign of form of lupus,” a teary-eyed Aquino said on Saturday in a Facebook live video.

“I am 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 are delaying the inevitable,” she said.
“I am allergic to everything in the environment. Bawal sa akin mapuno. Yan ang lumabas sa akin sa Singapore. Bawal sa akin ang anything above 33 degrees Celsius,” she added. “Naninikip po ang lalamunan, ang ibig sabihin nun hindi na nakakahinga. I am one fatal allergic reaction anaphylactic shock.”
Aquino found out in Singapore that the only thing that saved was her “kidney function,” which was still “OK.”
Her voice broke as she confessed that she had been trying her best for her sons.
She said her siblings could still not accept her suffering.
“Hanggang ngayon yung mga kapatid ko hindi nila matanggap. Please don’t make this harder for me because the boys have to be assured that come what may meron silang matatakbuhan,” she said.
“I am an imperfect person, but I tried my best to be the best mom that I can be,” she added.
This confession came after reports said Nicardo “Nicko” Falcis, Aquino’s former project manager, claimed he had been receiving death threats from the Aquino family.
Her camp has denied these claims during a press conference.
Aquino previously filed complaints against Falcis for qualified theft and violation of the Access Devices Regulation Act (Republic Act No. 8484).
Aquino accused Falcis of using her company’s credit card for personal expenditures. /atm
