NAJIB’S BLOOD PRESSURE “DANGEROUSLY HIGH”: DAUGHTER
Najib’s daughter Nooryana Najwa said that her father’s blood pressure turned “dangerously high” on Monday after doctors changed his medication to treat his stomach ulcer last Saturday.
According to Ms Nooryana, the doctors who did a biopsy procedure on Najib at the Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) discovered that he had multiple ulcers in his stomach.
“During the scope, the doctors at HKL also did a biopsy which led to some bleeding and the ulcer had to be clipped to stop the bleeding,” said Ms Nooryana in an Instagram post on Monday.
She said that doctors also changed his medication from the usual that he had been taking for years and sent him back to Kajang Prison.
However, a test by a medical assistant on Monday morning showed that Najib’s blood pressure was “dangerously high”, potentially due to the change in medication, she added.
Ms Nooryana said that on humanitarian grounds, her family would like to plead for the prison authority, the hospital and the government to do the “right thing” and allow for her father to receive proper medical care and observation.
On Sep 4, Malaysian media reported that Najib was admitted to hospital after experiencing some pain in his stomach.
Subsequently, Ms Nooryana posted a statement saying that her father had a recurring issue with his stomach and is prone to ulcers that can flare up during stress or after an episode of gastritis.
