Nawaz Sharif declared fit after tests conducted at PIC
LAHORE (92 News) – The incarcerated former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, who is being treated at Services Hospital, was declared completely fit in the tests conducted at Punjab Institute of Cardiology.
Troponin T rapid test (TROPT), blood tests, electrocardiography (ECG) and uric acid reports were clear in the tests.
Sources in the hospital confirmed that Nawaz Sharif had been suffering from chronic cardiac issue since long and he had not suffered a cardiac arrest recently.
They said that blood samples had been sent to Punjab Institute of Cardiology for test. Nawaz Sharif had undergone the tests at PIC after tests conducted at Jinnah Hospital showed positive.
Principal Mahmood Ayaz told 92 News that Nawaz Sharif is not facing any serious issue. “There will be no need to send him abroad for treatment. However, Nawaz Sharif will have to undergo more tests,” he said.
He said that they had received the results of all tests and the medical board had suggested changes in the treatment of Nawaz Sharif.
Meanwhile, Maryam Nawaz reached Services Hospital and brought meal for her father.
A six-member medical board, which was constituted to carry out a thorough medical examination of Sharif earlier this week, had recommended that the former prime minister be shifted to a hospital as he was suffering from multiple health issues that need immediate and specialised healthcare at a facility where care for multiple and complicated diseases is available.
Nawaz Sharif, who was convicted in the Al Azizia corruption reference by an accountability court last year and sentenced to seven years in prison, has reportedly experienced medical complications while serving time at Kot Lakhpat.
