Services Hospital Lahore Medical Superintendent Dr Saleem Shahzad Cheema has said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s platelets have increased but not to the normal level.
Talking to the media on Saturday, Dr Cheema said that the former premier was not medically fit. He further said that the number of platelets in Nawaz’s blood have not increased to a satisfactory level. He added that Nawaz was made to walk Saturday so doctors could know if he was able to travel or not.
Other doctors are of the opinion that the former prime minister is not in good condition so he remains in the hospital, he said, adding that Nawaz Sharif can make a request if he wants to leave the hospital. Nawaz Sharif will be declared fit after his platelets count increases to more than 150,000, the MS said.
Dr Cheema further said that Nawaz was being administered steroids to resolve kidney-related problems. He also said that Nawaz’s blood sugar level has increased from 200 to 375.
Earlier in the day, Nawaz’s family doctor, Dr Adnan Khan, took to Twitter to share updates on Nawaz’s health. He said that the former premier’s condition remains “critical” as platelet count has dropped again to 38,000.
The doctor added that the platelet count drop was witnessed after doctors tried to reduce administered steroid dose.
