"He needs to be constantly monitored for renal function, infections and if he is travelling he should be under the supervision of nephrologist, a dialysis technician, a nurse and use ambulance/air ambulance for emergency," said a report by Additional Professor Doctor Sanjay Gupta of the AIIMS' Department of Nephrology.

The report was submitted to Justice Ajit Bharihoke who had earlier sought to be apprised of Amar Singh's health condition to decide his bail plea.

"Following discharge, he needs to take medicines and follow a routine as directed to prevent any transplant kidney function deterioration," said the report, adding Singh has been suffering from other ailments including partial artery disease and respiratory problems besides Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)", AIIMS medical report said.

Recommending that Singh needs to be kept in a highly sanitised and hygienic environment, the medical report said "he should avoid crowded places and unsensitised environment to prevent getting infected. Unhygienic environment may lead to repeated infections leading to sepsis. The people around him should not have any communicable disease."

"The antibiotics need to be continued till the urine infection subsides and his renal parameters touch its baseline," the report said, adding Singh should take frequent small proper meals and drink water which is free from
microbes.
