LAHORE: The medical board formed to oversee the treatment of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif expressed concern over his health, on Wednesday.

The medical board at Services Hospital expressed concern for Sharif’s health after the former prime minister’s platelet count refused to increase. The board decided to change the former prime minister’s medication in hopes that it would improve his health.

It was further reported that the board decided to opt for suggestions from the best medical experts from around the world. A dental checkup of the former prime minister was also conducted.

PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif visited his ailing brother Nawaz at the Services Hospital.

Nawaz was rushed to the hospital on Monday night after his health condition deteriorated.

In a series of tweet, Dr Adnan said, “Thrombocytopenia (low platelet count) & NSTEMI (heart attack) is further complicated by deteriorating Kidney functions.”

He added that the poor blood sugar and blood pressure had also taken a toll on the former premier’s health.

The doctor further said, "Pending Scans/Biopsies, diagnostic dilemma still ensues from multiple complex pathologies & co-morbidities."

The chief executive of Sharif Medical City said that the doctors were also facing difficulty in establishing a definitive diagnosis and subsequent management poses a considerable risk to Nawaz’s health.

Meanwhile, hospital sources said the former premier had lost close to seven kilos since he had been admitted in the hospital. They added that before being admitted this weight was 107 kilos and right now it had gone to 100 kilos.

Former prime minister Nawaz was shifted to Services Hospital Lahore last week for medical examination and treatment after his condition deteriorated with a sudden drop in his platelet count.
