Hillary Clinton Releases Updated Medical Information After Pneumonia Diagnosis

Hillary Clinton has released updated medical records for the public’s perusal on Wednesday, September 14, which answers the lingering question on whether the Democratic nominee is fit to serve as the next President of the United States following her recent collapse from pneumonia, as reported by Slate.

Hillary Clinton’s physician, Dr. Bardack wrote the diagnosis in a letter published on the Democratic nominee’s official site.

“Mrs. Clinton has been seen by me this year for routine care,” Dr. Bardack wrote. “She has had recurrent blood testing for Coumadin dosing and adjustments. Her blood levels have been relatively stable. Hillary has also had several allergy flares over the past year, which has been a typical pattern for most of her life. In consultation with her allergist, she responded well to her medication adjustments.”

So in short, Hillary Clinton is in good health, which makes her absolutely fit to serve a term as the country’s next president.

The statement also mentioned that Clinton, 68, was evaluated on September 2 for fever, congestion, and fatigue and that she was advised to see her physician “when she returned from her travels for further testing.”

Dr. Bardack also conducted a CT scan, which revealed that Clinton has been afflicted with pneumonia. Hillary, for her part, admitted to CNN on Monday, September 12, that she “should have gotten some rest sooner” before attending the 9/11 ceremony in NYC on Sunday.

As per official medical records, Hillary has been diagnosed with “a mild non-contagious bacterial pneumonia.”

“I examined Hillary immediately upon her return home; she was re-hydrating and recovering nicely,” the doctor wrote in the letter. “I advised her to stay home and rest for the next several days. Mrs. Clinton has since been evaluated by me several times and continues to improve.”

The physician added that Hillary is up to date on all vaccines, including Prevnar and Pneumovax, which help prevent pneumonia. The letter did not indicate when Clinton received those vaccines.

Mrs. Clinton’s blood pressure of 100 over 70 and total cholesterol (189) are all within normal levels, as indicated in the letter.

The letter states that Hillary takes thyroid and allergy medicines to keep herself healthy. Clinton also takes Coumadin, a blood thinner prescribed to her after she suffered a concussion in 2012, which caused her to spend a few days in the hospital and take a month off from her post as Secretary of State. The blood clot was in a vein in the space between Clinton’s brain and the skull behind the right ear, according to the letter.

To bring home the point that Hillary Clinton is fit to serve, Dr. Bardack concluded in the letter that she “has remained healthy and has not developed new medical conditions this year other than a sinus and ear infection and her recently diagnosed pneumonia.”

“She [Hillary] is recovering well with antibiotics and rest,” the statement reads. “She continues to remain healthy and fit to serve as president of the United States.”

In response to Clinton’s recent bout with pneumonia, Republican nominee Donald Trump issued the results of a recent medical checkup when he appeared on The Dr. Oz Show on Wednesday.

A news release from the show said that Dr. Oz took the candidate “through a full review of systems including the following: nervous system; head and neck; hormone levels; cardiovascular health and related medications; respiratory health; gastrointestinal health; bladder or prostate health; dermatological health; history of cancer.”

The release states that Dr. Oz reviewed Trump’s “family medical history — occurrence of Alzheimer’s or dementia, heart disease, cancer in relatives.”

One of Trump’s aides conceded that Dr. Oz declared Donald “slightly overweight” at 236 pounds, as reported by NY Times.

Dr. Oz made a name for himself as the resident doctor on Oprah Winfrey’s show, a distinction that earned him the title “America’s Doctor.” He has undergone scrutiny for making numerous questionable statements in his television career.

Donald Trump recently issued a statement in Canton, Ohio Wednesday that he is doubtful Hillary Clinton would have the stamina to lead one of his events.

“You think Hillary Clinton would be able to stand up here for an hour and do this? I don’t think so, I don’t think so,” Trump said.
