Actor Dilip Kumar will be shifted out of the intensive care unit within 24-48 hours, said doctors from Lilavati Hospital. After slipping into a mildly critical stage on Friday, the thespian has almost recovered from his renal ailments and dehydration.
“We have thought of keeping him into observation for a day or two before shifting him out of the ICU. He has made a near complete recovery and his renal functions have improved significantly,” said V Ravishankar, chief executive officer of the hospital.
A major cause of concern were the actor’s elevated creatinine levels — a sign of kidney problems — and a drop in his blood haemoglobin. The kidneys maintain blood creatinine, but a spike indicates dysfunction or disease.
