Hillary Clinton’s campaign released additional medical information yesterday to ease concerns of potential voters over the nominee’s health. Clinton has routinely coughed during her speeches on the campaign trail, which was highly criticized by Donald Trump, who has questioned Clinton’s health often.
Clinton left a 9/11 memorial on Sunday due to her having a pneumonia. The former secretary of state was seen in a video, posted on Twitter, barely able to stand and falling into her vehicle as many secret service agents helped her into the vehicle.
Dr. Lisa Bardack, Clinton’s doctor, announced on Wednesday that she has evaluated Clinton four times this month and on Wednesday. She stated that Clinton has a middle-lobe pneumonia that is mild and non-contagious.
Bardack, chair of Internal Medicine at CareMount Medical, stated, “The remainder of her complete physical exam was normal and she is in excellent medical condition.”
The doctor further reassured the public that Clinton has not developed any additional medical conditions and that she is recovering well from the pneumonia. It was announced that Clinton suffers from seasonal allergies and has hypothyroidism, which she is taking medicine to control.
Clinton suffered a concussion in 2012, which led to a blood clot. The clot has resolved completely, according to the recent medical release.
