The Supreme Patriarch has low blood pressure and an irregular heartbeat, according to a statement issued by Chulalongkorn Hospital yesterday.
Physicians treating His Holiness Somdet Phra Nyanasamvara made the discoveries yesterday afternoon.
A blood test showed his white blood cells had increased while platelets have decreased, with irregularities in blood coagulation. A liver check found his liver did not function normally with acidosis or acid in the blood. Doctors have changed his medication to increase his blood pressure and control his heartbeat. His Holiness suffered an internal bacterial infection requiring doctors to remove part of his intestine on Oct 14.
