Noted TV personality, BJP leader and former cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu was admitted to a private hospital and is undergoing treatment for acute deep vein thrombosis.
“Mr Navjot Singh Sidhu was admitted to Indraprastha Apollo Hospital Delhi yesterday evening with acute deep vein thrombosis (DVT). This is a life threatening condition if not treated on time. Mr Sidhu has been put on blood thinners and has been recovering well. His condition is said to be stable as of now,” said a statement issued by Indraprastha Apollo Hospital authorities.
Even Navjot Singh took to his twitter account and shared the news with his well wishers and fans.
“Down but Not Out! Life threatening disease (DVT) With God’s Grace will recover. Life is Fragile, handle with Prayer,” tweeted Navjot with a picture.
DVT is caused by a blood clot in a deep vein which hinders the normal blood flow.
The symptoms may include swelling, pain, and tenderness, often in the legs.
