Before she does any more talking about the presidency in 2016, Hillary Clinton needs to come forward with her complete medical history and show that she is a healthy enough sixty-eight year old to run for President
After all, how healthy can Hillary Clinton be, if “She has to be carefully monitored for the rest of her life” ?
It has been known for over a year that “Hillary Clinton’s health issues [were] drastically worse than she [had] revealed publicly — and the [ ] presidential candidate [has] tried to keep her medical information private for fear that it would damage her bid for the White House in 2016, according to [“Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas,” by Edward Klein]....” Furthermore, [the 68-year-old] former secretary of state has suffered more fainting spells than publicly known, is prone to have blood clots, and may be at serious risk of a stroke, according to [Klein’s] book....
The medical scare that forced Clinton to be rushed to New York-Presbyterian Hospital on Dec. 30, 2013, revealed how serious the situation is.... (See “Hillary’s Heath Issues are Much Worse than She lets on...” by Joe Tacopina, 5/22/14, NY Post [http://nypost.com/2014/06/23/hillarys-health-issues-are-much-worse-than-she-lets-on-book/]).
WHAT DOCTOR MARC SIEGAL SAYSFlash forward to about a month ago, when [Hillary Clinton] has just announced her candidacy for president. Journalists deserve the same opportunity to pore over Hillary Clinton's medical records that we had for John McCain, but will we be given the chance? When she developed a blood clot outside her brain (transverse sinus thrombosis) in 2012, I contacted her neurologist, but was not given the same access to health information that I had when I was working on a story for The Washington Post and interviewing former President Clinton's heart surgeon after his bypass surgery in 2004.... Hillary's blood clot might have formed due to rest after head trauma and a concussion, though not as a direct result of the fall. She was placed on blood thinners and, with a prior history of a clot in her leg, she is likely to still be on them. She may well have an underlying tendency to form blood clots....” ( See “Hillary's health needs dose of transparency” by Marc Siegel, 4/16/15, USA Today [http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2015/04/16/hillary-clinton-health-concerns-medical-records-column/25764577/]). As a presidential candidate, Clinton should release her medical records.
HILLARY'S ALREADY COMPLEX MEDICAL HISTORY DURING TIME SHE WAS SECRETARY OF STATENow, back to Ed Klein’s book. He claims that Hillary was taken to New YorkPresbyterian after a fainting spell and concussion that she suffered in her seventh-floor office at the State Department — not at her home, as claimed. Also according to Klein, Hillary was initially treated at a State Department facility and was transferred to her home to recover. Bill Clinton, however, insisted Hillary be flown to New York City and be treated by specialists there.
During her visit to the upper Manhattan hospital, the presumed 2016 Democratic front-runner was diagnosed with several problems, including the clots. Hillary had a right transverse venous thrombosis, or a blood clot, between her brain and skull. “The unique thing about clotting in the brain is that it could have transformed into a stroke,” a cardiac specialist with knowledge of Hillary’s condition says in Klein’s book. Those kinds of clots are especially a threat while flying, when blood pools while sitting, and Hillary Clinton certainly did a lot of flying while Secretary of State. While at the State Department, Hillary Clinton was know to have had three significant falls.
All of that and much more needs to be put out there for all to see.
