Dr Jalil Parkar who was looking after Dilip Kumar in Lilavati hospital, confirmed the news. “His kidney functions have not improved. On the contrary, it has worsened. He is on the ventilator. We will be able to give a proper briefing in the morning,” says the Dr Parkar on Thursday. A team of nephrologists and physicians are treating Dilip Kumar which included Dr Jalil Parkar and cardiologist Dr Nitin Gokhale.

A source was quoted by TOI, ” The actor’s condition is not stable as his creatinine levels are rising. There has not been much improvement in his condition since hospitalization. If the kidneys continue to deteriorate, it could lead to failure. In such situations, the heart and lungs tend to get affected next as the toxins start circulating in the blood due to kidney failure”.
