LIMANG BESES sa isang linggo kung mag-dialysis si Bea Rose Santiago, former Miss International 2013. May chronic kidney disease ang beauty queen.
Sa kanyang Instagram post noong November 22 ay ibinahagi ni Bea shared that she needs to address her protein intake because of her dialysis.
“So I’ve been having a hard time with my protein intake and now I have low phosphate, low hemoglobin and having muscle aches. My Doctors and nutritionist recommended many vegan options but after 2 months I am now a pescatarian on the weekends and vegetarian on weekdays. I don’t consume cow’s milk and eggs but I do love oats milk and goat’s cheese,” kuwento niya sa IG post.
“I need weekly Aranesp and Iron shots to help me since I dialyze 5x a week and each time is 8 hours while I sleep. Works like magic,” she added.
Naging plant-based eater si Bea pero kailangan niyang i-shift ang kanyang diet dahil sa kanyang health condition.“I love being plant based and right now I’m going to slowly transition AGAIN! Only problem is IM A LAZY COOK and a dialysis patient. Still recommending to all to live by a plant-based diet just make sure you eat proper nutrition,” sabi niya ulit sa post.
Bumuhos naman ang dasal ng netizens at well wishers ni Bea sa comment section ng kanyang IG pagkatapos ng kanyang post.
