LAHORE: Maryam Nawaz, daughter of Nawaz Sharif, said on Thursday that recurrent angina and deterioration of renal function remained to be prime health concerns for her father.
She said her father was taken to Sharif Medical City Hospital, where his preliminary workup and clinical review was conducted.
The former premier was examined by professors of cardiology, medicine, nephrology and urology, his daughter said in her tweet.
"Recurrent angina and deterioration of renal function are the prime concerns," Maryam said, adding that Nawaz had been advised rest by the doctors.
She said her father's renal and cardiac issues were more complicated and serious than what they already knew.
"We shall know conclusively once we are through with the investigations and have the doctors’ recommendations before us," Maryam said further.
"Till then aggressive and continuous management is crucial," she added.
Nawaz, thrice the prime minister of Pakistan, had been in jail since December 2018 following his conviction in Al-Azizia corruption reference in line with the Supreme Court’s July 2017 verdict.
He was released from Kot Lakhpat Jail on Tuesday after the Supreme Court granted him bail for six weeks to obtain medical treatment in the country.
