According to Hillary Clinton's doctor, the 67-year-old grandma is in good enough health to serve as president of the United States.
Clinton "exercises regularly, including yoga, swimming, walking and weight training" and maintains a healthy diet, according to documents obtained by the Washington Examiner. The statement was originally reported by Fox News.
The former secretary of state is the first presidential candidate to make information about her health public. The release of the doctor's note comes the same day the State Department released another batch of her emails from when she was secretary of state. She is also expected to release tax returns Friday.
The letter is written by her primary care physician Lisa Bardack MD, who has treated Clinton since 2001. Clinton has a family history of heart disease and stroke, so she takes anticoagulation drugs on a daily basis, such as Coumadin. Clinton also takes Armour Thyroid to deal with hyperthyroidism. With these medications she maintains a relatively low blood pressure and heart rate of 100/65 and 72, respectively.
Clinton had some troubling health problems following a blood clot in 2012, according to the statement. After contracting a stomach virus from traveling in December 2012, Clinton became dehydrated, fainted and sustained a concussion.
In a following health evaluation she was found to have transverse sinus venous thrombosis, and quickly began anticoagulation therapy to get rid of the clot. Due to the concussion and the clot, Clinton suffered from double vision for a period of time and had to wear thick rimmed, Fresnel Prism glasses as a result. In 2013 she was cleared of all previous clotting disorders.
On Friday her doctor said that Clinton is a "healthy appearing" female who "does not use illicit drugs" but does "drink alcohol occasionally."
