DHARAMSHALA, April 7: Exiled Tibetan leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama who returned back to Dharamshala on Thursday has been declared fit by his doctor. The 82 year-old visited the Indian capital for a health consultation after he suffered from common cold, his doctor said.

The Dalai Lama’s western medicine physician Dr. Tsetan Dorjee Sadhutsang told Voice of Tibet that the Tibetan leader earlier in the week suffered from minor throat irritation and common cold and was flown to Delhi for a check up.

“After detailed examination and medication for the minor ailments, His Holiness has been declared fit and healthy by the consulting doctor. He also had the opportunity to check his pending eye check up during the 3-day trip,” Dr. Sadhutsang said.

The Chief Medical Officer at Delek Hospital, Dr. Sadhutsang, also said that the aging Tibetan leader only has age-associated exhaustion and generally is in excellent health.

In October 2008, the Tibetan leader underwent a laparoscopic surgery to remove stones in his gallbladder at Delhi’s Sir Ganga Ram Hospital and also underwent surgery for prostrate ailment at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota in the United States in 2016.

The health of the Tibetan leader who is set to turn 83 in three months’ time is carefully observed by his Tibetan followers, admirers around the world as well as the Chinese government which many say is poised to politicise the reincarnation issue of the Tibetan leader.
