MANILA -- Kris Aquino took to social media to give her followers an update about her health a year after she revealed that she is battling an auto-immune disease.

On Instagram on Wednesday, Aquino shared that she had an “inflammation in my right hand, coughed badly for 3 straight weeks and had blood tests last night.”

Aquino said she has reason to be grateful for because her results back in November are still the same this month.

Nonetheless, she said: “I still need to battle anemia, control my thyroid issues (explanation for my weight loss), and other stuff (some hereditary, others environmental) BUT a positive attitude is so beneficial to wellness.”

Aquino also said she takes comfort knowing that while “I may not be healthier, but I’m not worse.”

The former TV host also shared that she will be going back to work on Thursday and Friday following her doctor’s go signal.

“I’ve stopped asking why, but rather THANK YOU because each new day is a blessing... and a good friend’s birthday on Monday is a chance to help his outreach for those still displaced in Batangas,” she said.

To end her post, she wrote: “There’s good in this world, we should never get tired of finding it.”
