"Till now his condition is stable. But there is reason to worry as today is 10th day of his fast," Dr Naresh Trehan told reporters at the Ramlila Ground after examining 74-year-old Hazare.

Trehan, who along with his team, has been monitoring Hazare's health every two hours said the Gandhian has already lost over six kgs of weight and doctors will constantly monitor his condition throughout the night.

"He has already lost over six kgs of weight... We will keep a close watch on him throughout the night," Trehan said. Hazare was 72 kg before he began his fast on August 16.
He said results of various test to conducted on Hazare will be announced tomorrow morning.

Concerns mounted over Hazare's health after he refused doctors' advice on Tuesday night as well as yesterday to be put on an intravenous drip.

In the morning, doctors said there was stability in his blood pressure and heart beat. They also said that his ketone levels, which had gone up, has come down.
