- Bea shared recently that she had to undergo transplant because of her condition
Bea Rose Santiago gave an update about her health, months after revealing she was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease which she said was a result of her gym life. According to one of her recent posts, she flew to Tokyo to seek second opinion.
"I was diagnosed months ago, I was in denial and that's why I left the Philippines to get a second opinion in Tokyo and [then] it turned out to be a confirmation," she said.
She is now in Canada together with her family and potential donors for her.
"I will be needing a life-saving transplant. I live because of a machine, my dialysis machine and the doctors and nurses at Home Hemo Dialysis centre in Toronto General," she added.
Part of her message encouraged everyone to get themselves checked upon feeling weird and off.
"I am not asking for sympathy, I am asking for awareness... I suffered no symptoms... So please please when you feel weird and off, go get yourself checked," she wrote.
She first shared this to her Instagram followers through series of posts in her Instagram stories on August 4 as reported earlier by KAMI.
Because of experiencing severe migraine, Bea went to St. Luke's Medical Center in Bonifacio Global City to get checked.
"Yes, I'm sick. Since I damaged my kidneys when I was younger. My kidneys are more sensitive than a normal later 20s healthy woman.
The ex-beauty queen also reveled she felt having mixed feelings of thankfulness and scared.
"I'm thankful but at the same time really scared." Bea also warned her Instagram followers about drinking pre-workout drinks.
She then gave advise to take extra precautions in drinks like pre-workout and energy drinks.
"Guys, if you take pre-workout and other heavy workout, please be careful!
"Apparently there are many more like me. We damage our kidneys because of our gym life. "Before you do or change your diet or drink something make sure you don't have bad health history problems! "Always ask your doctors!"
In another Instagram story she uploaded showed the effects of spending three days in the hospital.
