(POLITICO) — Hillary Clinton’s campaign on Wednesday released more information about her health that depicted her as a healthy 68-year-old woman with low cholesterol (without taking a statin) and seasonal allergies. She also takes a thyroid medication, and as the campaign has previously disclosed, she takes a blood thinner, Coumadin.
The campaign also said it will release more information about her health later on Wednesday in the form of a comprehensive letter from her physician, a move designed to reassure voters just days after she was diagnosed with pneumonia.
The letter from Dr. Lisa Bardack will describe how the Democratic nominee received a non-contrast chest CT scan on Friday, said a Clinton campaign official. The scan revealed a small right middle-lobe pneumonia, which was non-contagious and bacterial. She was treated with Levaquin, and instructed to stay on it for 10 days, the campaign said.
