An AFP report indicates considerable fears for the king.

It says that the king “has been treated for heart trouble, high blood pressure and irregular breathing in recent weeks…”. It cites a Royal Household Bureau bulletin.

The statement stated “the king was being monitored for a high fever after doctors discovered diastolic dysfunction and high blood pressure in his lung last week.” Diastolic dysfunction is usually chronic.

The statement continues: “A team of royal physicians periodically administered antibiotic solution intravenously and also continuously provided oxygen…”. Antibiotics are not usually listed as a treatment for diastolic dysfunction.

Doctors are now “closely monitoring his condition” while they “seek an explanation for irregular breathing and a high temperature detected yesterday…”.
