Shinzō Abe told reporters that he has been struggling with his health, which began to deteriorate in mid July, and that he was ready to end his leadership of the world’s third largest economy and a successor. Before asking him about his choice if any of a political successor, as a reported told Abe understands the disease must be severe because he would have continued. “For almost eight years I controlled my chronic disease, however, this year in June he had a regular check-up and there was a sign of the disease,” he said. “I made a judgment that I should not continue my job as prime minister.
The old treatment, which was responsible for his recovery the last time the disease became severe, has stopped working. His resignation comes after the 65-year-old went to hospital twice in as many weeks. Abe has had ulcerative colitis for decades, having suffered with it since his teens. Diet and stress are believed to be factors that can aggravate the condition, with potential complications including an increased risk of colon cancer, a perforated colon and clots in blood vessels. Between a quarter and one third of patients with the condition may not respond to drugs and will be advised to have surgery to remove the colon.
While campaigning to return to PM for his second stint in power in 2012, Abe insisted he was “fully recovered” thanks to the arrival of an “innovative” drug. In a speech the following year, Abe credited his political comeback to a medication called Asacol, which he started taking in 2009 when it became available in Japan. “If this drug Asacol had taken more time to appear on the market in Japan, it’s quite possible that I would not be where I am today,” said Abe in 2013. However, the spotlight was refocused on Abe’s current health condition last month.
A chronic disease, ulcerative colitis is caused by the immune system overreacting. It affects the large intestine, or colon, and is characterized by inflammation which results in sores, or ulcers, on the lining. The ulcers create pus and mucous which trigger pain and the need to relieve oneself. Symptoms of ulcerative colitis can include lose bowel movements and the urgent need to use the restroom; blood in stools; abdominal cramps and pain; as well as persistent diarrhea accompanied by abdominal pain and bloody stools. Other symptoms include a loss of appetite, weight loss, nausea, fever, low energy levels, anemia, and delayed growth in children. According to the Chron’s and Colitis Foundation, symptoms vary between patients, with around half of cases being mild.
Patients can go into remission, when they do not suffer symptoms, for months or years. Instead patients must try to manage the condition. Doctors may prescribe medication to suppress inflammation in the colon and control symptoms and delay flare-ups. As foods can aggravate the condition, patients can be advised to avoid certain foods, such as those that are spice or contain high levels of fiber.
>> In 2007, he stepped down as prime minister citing the condition, but returned to the post in 2012.
>> But the symptoms will generally come back as there is no cure.
>> Shinzō Abe is now trying a new treatment, which may or may not be effective.
>> Shinzō Abe “I need to fight the disease and need to be treated.”
Note:- if Shinzō Abe is not well because of his health issue, i think may be Yoshihide Suga will be elected as Japan’s new PM.
Japanese PM Shinzo Abe has announced his resignation for health reasons.
