Fellow showbiz personalities expressed words of support for Kris Aquino after sharing more updates about the status of her health as she continuously seeks treatment in the United States.

The “Queen of All Media” announced that she has signed up in a hospital’s “center for those with rare [and] undiagnosed illnesses” which would entail her to undergo “what will likely be more than 18 months of diagnosis [and] treatment.”

“My last set of test results were conflicting; that’s why I chose to have my full diagnosis [and] treatment with a team of multidisciplinary doctors,” Kris said in an Instagram post on Thursday.

She shared that she will be admitted by early 2023 “to undergo every imaginable test they’ll deem necessary.”

“After my results, the team shall decide what treatment will be best because the coordinator admitted I’m a ‘challenge’ since I’m allergic to so many types of medicine, including all steroids. Pang case study daw ako — [one] person with multiple autoimmune conditions [and] over 100 known allergic or adverse reactions to medication,” Kris said.

The showbiz personality also shared that they have filed their papers before the US immigration to extend their stay following her scheduled medical appointments.

“We miss our family [and] so many of you,” Kris said.

Following Kris’ health update, various personalities from the entertainment industry peppered her Instagram post with warm messages of support.

“Pagaling po kayo,” actress-businesswoman Neri Naig commented with a heart emoji.

“Miss you, guys,” Miles Ocampo wrote with white heart emojis.

“Prayers for your healing, Ate Kris,” Iza Calzado commented with several folded hands emojis.

“God bless, mare,” Ogie Alcasid said.

“God bless you and the [two] boys, Ms. Kris. Always praying for you,” Jed Madela shared with a heart emoji.

“Hugs and prayers, Ms. Kris. Ingat palagi with Boys,” Melai Cantiveros said.

“Always praying for you, gorge,” K Brosas wrote with folded hands emojis.

“Fighting, Krisy! God is Great. Manalig lang lagi tayo,” Darla Sauler, her former “Kris TV” sidekick, said with heart emojis.

“AJA! God is good, He is the Jejovah-Rapha—the One who heals. Stay strong, Ms. Kris! You [and] your family are always included in our prayers,” her impersonator, Krissy Achino, commented with emojis of a sparkling heart and folded hands.

Last October, Ogie Diaz claimed that Kris was getting better since flying to the US to seek treatments for her medical condition.

Ogie also alleged that Kris gained weight, which he said was an indication her medications were working.

Kris is known to have autoimmune thyroiditis, chronic spontaneous urticaria and eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis or EGPA.

Last September, she revealed being possibly diagnosed with a fifth autoimmune condition.

An autoimmune disease is an illness in which the person’s immune system attacks the body’s healthy cells, mistaking them for foreign invaders like bacteria and viruses.

Healthline said that there are more than 80 known autoimmune conditions. Their symptoms often overlap, making them hard to diagnose.
