Nawaz Sharif’s platelets count remains unstable

LAHORE, Nov 04 (INP): Former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim league-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif’s platelets on Monday dropped again to around 40,000.

The medical board taking care of the erstwhile premier’s health examined him and conducted further tests including the complete blood count (CBC). Sources have revealed that the doctors have stopped giving blood thinning medicines to Nawaz Sharif as the platelets count is reached to 40,000.

It has been learnt that the blood pressure of Nawaz Sharif, who has been admitted to the Services Hospital Lahore for fourteen days, is under control. However, his blood sugar level is unstable due to steroid injections. Insulin is being used to control diabetes. On the other hand, Nawaz Sharif’s kidney disease is also creating complexities in his treatment. The former prime minister’s personal physician said in his tweet that the PML-N supremo is still in critical condition. INP/LK/AJ
