Yunus’s deprivation of diet and medication is dangerous for her condition

The prolonged detention of human rights activist Leyla Yunus, who suffers from an acute form of diabetes, and needs a diet intake and medications, can lead to serious consequences. Such an opinion in an interview with Turan was voiced by Doctor Azad Isazadeh, commenting on the consequences of refusing to accept food and medicines transferred to jail for the human rights activist. The Prison Service explains its refusal, saying that only close relatives can bring food and medicine.

Medicines for Yunus were brought by her husband, Arif Yunus, but now he has been arrested.

Diabetics also need fresh air and to be in constant motion. In prison it is not present, while the lack of diet and drugs can seriously complicate the condition, even up to coma.

Even if the patient is taking medication, but does not get special food, this can lead to a sharp increase or decrease in blood sugar, which is equally dangerous.

In the case of Yunus most optimum would change the measure of restraint for at least house arrest, especially since it is not a public danger.

If this is not possible, there is an urgent need to let her close friends send her food and medicines, said Isazadeh.

According to him, the request was sent to the Attorney General.

Regarding the state of her husband, it is also alarming. In recent weeks, he has twice endured a hypertensive crisis, and on the left hand there are signs of a cut (a mild form of paralysis).

Arif Yunus was arrested in the street, and it is unlikely he had his drugs with him.

According to Isazadeh, high blood pressure must be constantly monitored and the patient has to take medication regularly.
