President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner was today forced to cancel her agenda for the next 24 hours after doctors diagnosed her with low blood pressure.
A medical document was signed by presidential doctors Luis Buonomo, Marcelo Ballesteros and Daniel Fernandez. It read “Today, the President of the Nation, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, was diagnosed with low blood pressure and was recommended total rest and monitoring over the next 24 hours”.
This is not the first time President Fernández has suffered from blood pressure problems. In both April and August of this year the president was forced to suspend activities for a day or two to rest.
Low blood pressure can create a situation whereby certain organs are not receiving sufficient amounts of blood to function normally. It is not a serious or critical condition, but can create difficulties in day-to-day life.
