Maryam Nawaz demands ECG, fresh labs for Nawaz Sharif

F.P. Report

LAHORE: Family and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders held meeting with former prime minister Nawaz Sharif at Kot Lakhpat Jail in Lahore today (June 8).

According to details, Nawaz’s mother, daughter Maryam and son-in-law Captain (r) Safdar also arrived at the court to meet him along with his personal physician Dr. Adnan Khan.

After meeting with Nawaz Sharif, Dr. Adnan tweeted about his health where he mentioned that he consulted with Nawaz Sharif who is having an uncontrolled high blood pressure which requires further work-up, labs and electrocardiogram (ECG).

He further said doctors from the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC), who conducted former premier’s health check up on Wednesday, advised sublingual medication to him fearing hypertensive emergency owing to unsupervised environment at Kot Lakhpat.

Dr. Adnan emphasized on specialized care for Nawaz Sharif.

While responding to Dr. Adnan’s tweet, PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz backed Nawaz Sharif saying that his personal physicians alerted about medicines prescribed by PIC doctors which can suddenly decrease his blood pressure and give him a stroke as he has already been prescribed on max dosage.

She further said that sublingual medication must not be done without an all-time monitoring which is not possible in jail.

On May 8, PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif returned Kot Lakhpat Jail in a rally of his party workers and leaders after expiry of six-week bail in a corruption case.
