HARIDWAR, June 10 (IANS): With Baba Ramdev's condition further deteriorating Friday, doctors monitoring him stated that his "weight loss" and "low pulse rate" were causing concern.
"Baba (Ramdev) has lost 1.5 kg weight in the last one day. His pulse rate is also falling. If it decreases further, it is a matter of concern," said Yogesh Kumar Sharma, chief medical officer (CMO) of Haridwar, as the yoga guru continued his fast for the seventh day.
Doctors have also observed negative changes in Ramdev's kidney functioning.
"His urine examination showed the presence of albumin, which is a bad indication in terms of kidney functioning," he said.
The team earlier advised Ramdev to get hospitalised.
"The team has observed his situation. He is suffering from dehydration, and his condition has deteriorated," said Sharma, adding that the yoga guru has lost "5.5 kg since Saturday".
Ramdev Thursday took lemonade and honey at the request of doctors.
The yoga guru has been on a fast unto death here after being forced to move out of Delhi's Ramlila Ground Saturday midnight.
