Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s platelets dropped again as the doctors tried to reduce the steroids dose being administered to him, said the former prime minister’s personal physician Adnan Khan on Saturday.
“Former PM Nawaz Sharif remains critical. The treating doctors tried to reduce the Steroids dose being given to him but unfortunately resulted in drop in Platelet count again which has come down to 38*10^3/uL yesterday,” Dr Adnan posted on his twitter handle. He stressed that the cause behind the drop in platelets needs to be diagnosed and established without delay. “Severe existent co-morbidities (IHD, ECVD, DM, HTN, CKD3) has added to the seriousness of the nature of critical illness, where a very delicate balance has to be maintained between coagulation & anti-coagulation to sustain fragile unstable health status,” he added.
On Tuesday, the physician had tweeted saying that the former prime minister’s health was in a critical condition and was fighting a battle for survival.
