Sidhu recommended special diet after medical check up

Tuesday, 24 May 2022 | PNS | Chandigarh

Cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu, undergoing one-year rigorous imprisonment at Patiala Central Jail after his conviction in 34 years old road rage case, was recommended  to have a “special diet” after the medical board conducted a complete checkup.


A medical board of Patiala’s Rajindra Hospital on Monday conducted Sidhu’s medical examination after his application in the court demanding special diet for him, instead of jail food, citing his medical condition.


A three-member medical board, comprising a doctor of medicine, cardiologist, and dietician, reportedly recommended a “special diet” for Sidhu after conducting his blood test and various other examinations.


Demanding “special diet” instead of jail food, Sidhu argued that that he suffers from embolism — a blocked artery caused by a foreign body. Notably, Sidhu had also underwent treatment in 2015 for acute deep vein thrombosis — a condition where a blood clot forms in a vein deep in the body.


The medical board has submitted the report recommending berries, papaya, guava, double-toned milk, and food items that do not have much carbohydrates for Punjab Congress’ former president. Sidhu has also been recommended a high-fibre and low-fat diet, including fruits, and boiled vegetables.


It has been learnt that the board has also recommended against using atta and maida in his food considering Sidhu’s medical conditions.
