Ex-President Lee Teng-hui hospitalized after getting dizzy

Former President Lee Teng-hui's (???) condition has stabilized after he was admitted to Taipei Veterans General Hospital on Saturday night when his blood glucose level fell too low, and he could leave the hospital at any time, his doctor said Sunday.

Following a series of examinations, the hospital concluded that Lee was in a stable condition after experiencing low blood sugar, fast heartbeats, chest tightness and dizziness Saturday night, Chen Yun-liang (???), a doctor at the hospital said.

The 93-year-old Lee is at high risk for myocardial infarction because he has a history of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and stroke and has coronary artery stents, according to Chen.

Lee's condition has stabilized and he can walk normally, Chen said, suggesting that Lee can be discharged whenever he feels he has regained his strength.

Meanwhile, Lee's office director Wang Yan-chun (???)said Sunday morning that Lee was back to normal and thanked everybody for their concern.
