LAHORE (92 News) – The health condition of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif is still unstable even undergoing treatment in hospital for seven days on Monday.
According to the reports, Nawaz Sharif is facing reduction of blood platelet count and chest pain. However, he has also problems of kidneys for administering IVIG injections and steroids.
A day earlier, the health of Nawaz Sharif has again slipped into the danger zone as his blood platelet count drastically decreased from 45,000 to 25,000 within a day. The blood platelet count of Nawaz has fallen to 25,000.
The medical board immediately stopped administering Heparin medicine to Nawaz for his heart condition while the Punjab Institute of Cardiology issued a 24-hour duty roster of a heart specialist to monitor his health.
Earlier, as Nawaz’s health started deteriorating at the Services Hospital, the medical board conducted a medical test which showed that around 20,000 platelets decreased in a day. In view of the alarming situation, the medical board decided to stop administering him Heparin medicine which was suggested a couple of days ago when Trop and Trop I test report came in positive.
“Although the number of platelets decreased but hopefully it will increase as the medical board has stopped administering Heparin medicine to Nawaz,” said Dr Mehmood Ayaz, head of the medical board.
“Relatives of Nawaz have expressed satisfaction over his treatment and according to them his treatment will continue at the Services Hospital. However, if his family wants to shift him from here, the medical board will decide in this regard.
The board has also advised Maryam Nawaz
and Shehbaz Sharif to stop PML-N leaders and other politicians from meeting Nawaz.
Punjab Health Minister Dr Yasmin Rashid said that Nawaz Sharif had suffered a minor heart attack but his heart muscles were not damaged. “The ex-PM is satisfied from the treatment being given to him,” she concluded.
The jailed former prime minister is being treated by cardiac specialist after suffering a minor heart attack at Services Hospital on Friday night.
Sources said that the condition of former premier has improved and he is being given heart medicines. Moreover, doctors have decided to continue the treatment of the Intravenous Immune Globulin (IVIG) injection.
