KATHMANDU, Aug 25: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli's health condition is normal, a key aide to the prime minister said on Sunday morning.
Oli's chief political advisor Bishnu Rimal said on Twitter that the prime minister's plasmapheresis treatment had started at National University Hospital in Singapore on Friday.
Referring to PM's personal physician Divya Singh, Rimal said that Oli should undergo the plasmapheresis treatment couple of times. "Prime Minister's health condition is normal," Rimal tweeted.
On Friday, Oli had left for Singapore 10 days after returning from there for his medical check-up. Oli's advisors say that there is nothing to worry regarding the PM’s health.
During his treatment in Singapore, the doctors will primarily be focused on reducing the number of antibodies in the PM’s blood. According to them, the number normally goes up after kidney transplant. The doctors will take several measures to increase the functioning of the kidney and decrease creatinine level.
Antibody related to kidneys was found more than required in Oli's body during his health check-up in Singapore last time.
The prime minister is accompanied by his spouse Radhika Shakya, personal physician Singh and among others. Earlier in 2007, Oli underwent kidney transplant surgery. Since then he has been on kidney enhancement drug therapy.
