Activist Anna Hazre's health is improving and his blood pressure and heart rate have become stable. However, his normal diet has not been resumed as yet, a doctor attending on him said on Monday.

"The improvement has started. He has lost only 200 grams (since Sunday), which was earlier 500 grams per day. So it is a sign of improvement," said Naresh Trehan, who has been monitoring Hazare's condition at Medanta Medicity, Gurgaon.

Hazare broke his 12-day fast against corruption on Sunday morning after drinking coconut water and honey mixture.

Thereafter, he was taken to the hospital where he is being given coconut water and honey at regular intervals.

"The weight has stabilised. He has not started the complete diet, it will be done eventually for gradual recovery," Trehan said in the medical bulletin.

Doctors also conducted chest X-rays which gave "clear reports".

"Blood ketones have reduced. We will conduct more tests for timely monitoring," Trehan said, adding that Hazare lost around seven kg during the fasting period.
