Sixty-seven year old Hillary Clinton is a very healthy woman who suffers from seasonal allergies, hypothyroidism and is taking blood thinners in a precautionary way against clots, according to a letter released by her physician on Friday through her political campaign.
Dr. Lisa Bardack the chair of internal medicine for Mount Kisco Medical Group and the physician for Clinton since 2001 said all of Clinton’s screening evaluations for cancer were negative.
The doctor added that Clinton was in excellent physical condition and was fit to serve as the U.S. President.
In releasing the health record for Clinton, her campaign hopes to show off a higher level of transparency than those of her rivals.
The campaign said that the former U.S. Secretary of State during was the first presidential candidate for 2016 to release health history, which is usually conducted only when a candidate becomes the nominee for his or her party.
The campaign said it plans to release Clinton’s 2007 through 2014 detailed tax returns late Friday afternoon, which completes the gap in her returns made public since she last attempted a run for the presidency.
An aide with Clinton’s campaign said it would break down every source of income of the Clinton’s, name corporate clients who have paid both the Clintons for making giving speeches and detail fees paid to them as well.
That is consistent with tax returns filed during the years after the Clintons had left the White House, when the couple started earning money for speeches and advances on books.
The Clinton’s returns and the health statement for Hillary were released by the Clinton campaign just prior to the State Department dropping another batch of emails to and from Clinton on the Freedom of Information Act website.
It is the most recent email dump, which is part of more than 55,000 pages of emails she turned over to them, that were stored on the private email server at her house, which she promised would be made public and has caused Clinton concern with her campaign.
Her just released health statement also included the detailed circumstances that surrounded her concussion in 2012 that prevented her from giving testimony before the congressional committees investigating the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Iran.
