New Delhi: Union Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj tweeted on Wednesday that she has been on dialysis at AIIMS after suffering kidney failure. She also said that she is undergoing tests for a possible kidney transplant.

Sushma Swaraj was admitted to AIIMS on November 7 for some endocrinological tests, and is being monitored by doctors. “Sushmaji is a diabetic because of which her kidney has got affected. She is undergoing dialysis. She is stable now,” the AIIMS doctor told IANS.

According to him, Sushma Swaraj’s sugar level remains high, due to which she is facing severe diabetic problems.
