Bea Rose Santiago was diagnosed with CKD.
BEA ROSE SANTIAGO – Miss International 2013 Bea Rose Santiago revealed that she had been diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease.
Miss International is one of the most prestigious beauty pageants that people are watching out for every year. And last 2013, queen Bea Rose Santiago snatched the crown and the title.
And last year, it was the celebrity daughter Mariel De Leon who represented the country but failed to have the prestigious title for the Philippines again.
And recently, Miss International 2013 shared and revealed that she was diagnosed with having a CKD or Chronic Kidney Disease.
As featured on her Instagram story, the people got alarmed and shocked over her revelation.
“Yes, I’m sick. I damaged my kidneys when I was younger. My kidneys are more sensitive than a normal late 20s healthy woman. I can’t overdo things, and I just found out. Came to the hospital for my severe migraines and we found out something potentially more dangerous. I’m thankful but at the same time really scared,” she said.
She then added, “Guys, if you take pre-workout [drinks]… plus heavy workout, be careful! Apparently, there are many more like me! We damaged our kidneys because of our gym life!”
According to an article from Mayo Clinic, Chronic Kidney Disease is a condition characterized by a “gradual loss of kidney function” over time.
It is also called Chronic Kidney Failure and one of its symptoms included swelling of feet and ankles which actually happened to the beauty queen.
