Clinton campaign releases additional health details on candidate


Clinton to return to campaign trail on Thursday

Mrs. Clinton’s physician, Lisa Bardack, said that after several evaluations in recent days the former secretary of state is recovering well with antibiotics and rest.

“She is recovering well with antibiotics and rest”, the statement reads.

The Democratic White House nominee “continues to remain healthy and fit to serve as president of the United States”, she wrote, noting she is in “excellent mental condition”.

So 54 percent of the people who said they’d vote for Clinton said they picked her because they don’t like Trump.

Hours earlier, Trump, the Republican nominee, released the results of a recent physical examination and spoke about his health regimen during a Wednesday morning taping of “The Dr. Oz Show” in Manhattan.

The health episode fueled long-simmering conservative conspiracy theories about Clinton’s health and provided a fresh line of attack for rival Donald Trump, who has frequently questioned whether Clinton has the stamina to serve as commander in chief. The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute defines obesity as a body mass index of 30 or more, and overweight as a BMI of 25 to 29.9.

But just before Wednesday’s taping, Trump’s staff tried to downplay expectations, saying that he would instead discuss broader health topics and that Trump’s exam results would be released later.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton walks from her daughter’s apartment building Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016, in NY.

The release comes amid calls for Trump to make disclosures about his own physical fitness.

In the end, the Republican nominee brought a one-page summary of the medical exam to the set.

Trump said he wanted to lose 15-20 pounds, audience members told Politico. The other hid a pneumonia diagnosis until it knocked her off the campaign trail. Bardack wrote that Clinton “continues to improve”. Clinton was treated with Levaquin, which she was advised to take for 10 days. Bardack wrote that after Clinton’s travel, which included numerous flights on her new campaign plane, her congestion worsened and she developed a cough, evidenced by a coughing attack during a campaign rally in OH on Labor Day.

“Obviously I should have gotten some rest sooner”, Clinton said on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 on Monday.

The information released Wednesday offered more details about her condition. He noted that Clinton’s triglycerides jumped from 69 a year ago to 159, but he speculated that that could be ascribed to whether she ate before blood tests. Her letter also described various medications that Clinton is taking, including Coumadin, a blood-thinner.

At the same time, Clinton has criticized Donald Trump for releasing a letter from his doctor earlier previous year, which contained virtually no objective health information.

The Hillary Clinton campaign has released updated health information for the Democratic presidential candidate.

The Clinton campaign also released a one-page report on vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine based on an examination conducted February 12. The upper chamber of the left side of Kaine’s heart is enlarged, but Monahan noted nothing else unusual about his heart or major arteries. Instead, Clinton continued with a full day of campaign events, choosing to “power through” despite her illness.

Health speculations were kindled last week when Clinton trailed off into a coughing attack during her first press conference in almost nine months.

“I think Trump is in good health personally”, Sumser said. “It lasts a couple days, and then it disappears”.

The two-page letter from Michael J Wildes, posted on Mrs Trump’s Twitter account, marks the first time that she has publicly identified the type of visas she held and gave specifics about her entry into the US.
