As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Clinton Releases More Health Details

Well, obviously the Clinton campaign is pretty spooked. The campaign today released a detailed summary of her latest checkups, in the form of a letter from her physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack. It’s not nearly her full medical records, but it’s what the campaign hopes is enough to get the issue behind her.

Interestingly, Mrs. Clinton had a brain scan this year. From the letter:

In January of 2016, Mrs. Clinton developed symptoms of sinusitis and an ear infection, which was treated with antibiotics and steroids. Over the ensuing few weeks, she noted progressive pain in her left ear despite treatment, and subsequently was evaluated by her ENT physician. This evaluation confirmed a sinus and ear infection, with increased fluid in her left ear. To help alleviate her symptoms, a myringotomy tube was placed in her left ear in January of 2016. After the tube was placed, Mrs. Clinton had significant improvement in her symptoms. Further follow-up evaluation with a CT scan of her brain and sinuses was done in March of 2016. This scan showed no abnormalities of the brain and mild chronic sinusitis. Her symptoms resolved and she continued symptom-free for the next six months.

Here is the part about her pneumonia:

On Friday, September 9th, she was seen and evaluated in my office. A non-contrast chest CT scan, including a CTA calcium score, was performed. This test allowed for specific imaging of her lungs while also following up on cardiac risk stratification from 2010 given her family history of heart disease. The results of the CT scan revealed a small right middle- lobe pneumonia; her coronary calcium score was again zero. She was treated with antibiotics for pneumonia and advised to rest. This was a mild non-contagious bacterial pneumonia.

And here are the general stats:

Her laboratory testing (vitamin D, CBC, fasting blood glucose, comprehensive metabolic panel, hemoglobin A1-C, vitamin B12) was normal, including cholesterol of 189, LDL of 103, HDL of 56 and triglycerides of 159. Her vital signs showed blood pressure of 100/70, heart rate of 70, respiratory rate of 18, temperature of 97.8 and pulse-oximetry of 99%. The remainder of her complete physical exam was normal and she is in excellent mental condition.

Of course, the only problem with this is that it was released by Hillary Clinton, and we have no idea whether it is true or not. Or whether, more likely, something is being left out.

    • Please excuse Hillary from (school) the campaign trail these last 2 days. She is better now.
      Don’t expect any missed work to be made up; she is HRC, dontcha know, in perfectly ill health which will soon cause further absence with in her adoring media. Shut up & know that what she says is the truth (Clinton truth: not applicable to any other living being).

  1. Eww, this woman is a walking petri dish of bacteria. Ear infections, sinus infections, lung infections, chronic coughs, pneumonia, blood clots, thyroid problems, and who knows what else.
    Then there are the woozy, dizzy spells that cause her to stumble/collapse causing broken bones and brain damage.
    geez.

  2. It’s BS.
    They need to do a culture test to find out if it’s viral, bacterial or fungus. It takes 2-3 days for it to be determined which type of pneumonia she has. At the earliest her labs would’ve come back Sunday since she was diagnosed on Friday.

  3. This report is an utter crock of crap showing very low blood pressure and total optimal cholesterol of 189 for an overweight obviously sedentary women pushing 69 with overlying health issues including passing out at random events and well placed forgetfulness when it is convenient. Bull I say

    • That was my reaction to the data, also. There is no way that an overweight, non-exercising, nearly 70 year old, high strung person like Hillary has those numbers, as you suggest. What we are missing (conveniently) are the result of a neurological examination–memory tests, general reactions to stimuli, brain scan, MRI, nerve biopsy, Electromyography (EMG), Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV), etc. Yet, her neurological issues (post-concussion, falling, stumbling, poor balance) are at the forefront of her medical issues, it would appear.

  4. I know MY medical records consist of more than a couple of letters. This is just another feint by The Clinton Mafia to try to get out from under this.
    She needs to be harried and harassed until she drops out of the the campaign or until she loses the election.

    • Deteriorating physical and mental conditions have a nasty record of coming back to bite you.
      I’m with Grace just below.
      Hard to believe anything they say.

  5. This letter has no credibility. HRC lies. HRC employees lie on her behalf. This doctor is a long term employee of hers, and , if history holds, is also lying.

    Nothing to see here.

    The truth will be on the trail, under the lights, standing on the debate platforms.

    They have pronounced her in good health. There is no reason for Donald Trump to defer to her as if she were not. Game on.

    • For any of you who use Twitter, the most detailed analysis of Hillary’s medical report was done by Milton Wolf MD. He really rips apart Dr. Bardack’s claims.

      • I’m sure everyone expected Hillary’s medical report would be full of lies but it’s stunning her doctor said she had a CT test that doesn’t even exist. It’s good Dr. Wolf exposed the sham. Very interesting article. Thanks for the heads up!

      • Dr. Wolf (a radiologist) is also Obama’s (White) second cousin from Kansas.

        I remember reading his scathing attacks on Obama during his re-election campaign.
        He is active in Tea Party politics and writes for the Wash. Times.

  6. Not exactly on this health report card, but Kellyanne Conway, Trumps Bulldog (would love to see her with Josh)takes on Alison Camerota (formerly of Fox) on health, taxes, stamina and a few issues like the veracity of the Clintons and the bias of the media.

  7. Follow up detailed exam revealed the Orbicularis Oris was healthy but somewhat enlarged. The Orbicularis sphincter on the other hand also had lips, which when expressed voiced a jumble of English words which could be heard with normal audio over 200 feet distance. Those present all concur the sphincter said ” I never do e-mails!” So noted on chart.

  8. It’s curious the doctor’s letter mentions Hillary’s hematologist, allergist, and ENT doctor but no endocrinologist for her hypothyroidism or any other specialist.

    I always thought healthy meant not needing specialists or dangerous medication. But what do I know…
