London, May 12 (ANI): The health of detained Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi has improved after she suffered from dehydration and low blood pressure last week, her party has said. Dr. Pyone Moe Ei, one of Suu Kyi’s doctors, was allowed to visit her at her lakeside home in Yangon on Monday afternoon.

The doctor spent nearly five hours there and administered an intravenous drip, The Telegraph quoted Nyan Win, spokesman for the National League for Democracy, as saying.

“The doctor said Daw Suu’s health has improved but she still suffers from cramps. The doctor has prescribed necessary medicines,” Nyan Win said.

“Daw” is a term of respect used for older women in Myanmar.
