GUNTUR: With medical reports suggesting deterioration in the health condition of YSRC president YS Jaganmohan Reddy, whose indefinite fast entered the sixth day on Monday demanding Special Category Status (SCS) for the state, the police have made arrangements to shift him to the Government General Hospital (GGH) any time should the need arise.
A team of doctors from the Guntur General Hospital (GGH), which did clinical tests on Jagan three times in the presence of media on Monday, said that his condition was causing concern and that he should be monitored closely.
GGH RMO Dr Ramesh, who led the team, said the blood sugar levels and pulse rate were dropping hour after hour. “As we found the presence of ketone bodies in urine, there is every possibility of Reddy’s health deteriorating further leading to problems related to kidneys and liver and he may slip into coma,” he said.

Health condition of YSRC chief alarming, say doctors
YSR Congress president Y.S Jaganmohan Reddy continued his fast demanding Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh for the sixth day even as his health condition deteriorated and is leading to an alarming condition called as “Starvation Ketoacidoisis,’’ which, doctors said, could lead to serious complications including renal failure.
“Mr. Jagan’s ketone levels are showing an abnormal level which could lead to multiple organic failure. This is a medical emergency and calls for immediate treatment,’’ said a emergency physician.
