Hillary Clinton’s personal doctor, Lisa Bardack, says the Democratic nominee is “healthy and fit to serve” as US president as her campaign released updated medical information.

The statement said Hillary Clinton “continues to improve” after a pneumonia diagnosis.

The disclosure came as Donald Trump released health data of his own on The Dr Oz Show.

Hillary Clinton aides say she will return to the campaign trail on September 15 after falling ill in public at the weekend.

Both candidates, among the oldest ever to run for the White House, have been under intense pressure to share more medical information.

Health issues have dominated the race for November’s election since a dizzy spell forced Hillary Clinton, 68, to leave a 9/11 ceremony in New York on September 11.Hillary Clinton South Carolina victory

Hillary Clinton’s campaign said on September 14 that her physician found her complete physical examination was “normal” and she is in “excellent mental condition”.

Dr. Lisa Bardack said Hillary Clinton was “recovering well with antibiotics and rest”.

The campaign said Hillary Clinton had a chest scan on September 9 that showed a “mild, non-contagious bacterial pneumonia”.

Hillary Clinton – who has been recuperating at her suburban New York home – was treated with an antibiotic called Levaquin, which she was prescribed for 10 days.

Dr. Lisa Bardack said: “She continues to remain healthy and fit to serve as President of the United States.”

The physician said Hillary Clinton was up to date on all vaccines, including two given to help prevent pneumonia, Prevnar and Pneumovax.

The letter did not state when she received those vaccines.

Hillary Clinton’s blood pressure (of 100 over 70) and total cholesterol (189) were all within healthy levels, according to the letter.

The former Secretary of State also had a normal mammogram and breast ultrasound, said the doctor.

Hillary Clinton takes thyroid and allergy medicines and the blood thinner Coumadin, prescribed after she suffered a blood clot resulting from a 2012 concussion.

The blood clot was said to have been in a vein in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear.

The complication led Hillary Clinton to spend a few days in hospital and take a month off from her job at the State Department.

Donald Trump, meanwhile, has said he is planning to release details this week of a recent physical.

The Republican White House nominee handed over a one-page summary of that examination while appearing on The Dr Oz Show.

Donald Trump told Dr. Oz he is 236lb and 6ft 3in tall, which would make him clinically overweight.

The Dr Oz Show will not be broadcast until September 15 and the campaign declined to immediately disclose the results.

Donald Trump told a rally in Canton, Ohio, on September 14 that he doubted Hilalry Clinton would have the stamina to lead one of his events.

The Republican asked the crowd: “You think Hillary would be able to stand up here for an hour and do this? I don’t think so, I don’t think so.”

Donald Trump later said she was “lying in bed, getting better”.


A group of top doctors have demanded Dr. Mehmet Oz removal from his faculty position at Columbia University, citing his “egregious lack of integrity” for promoting what they call “quack treatments”.

“Dr. Oz has repeatedly shown disdain for science and for evidence-based medicine,” said a letter the ten physicians sent to a Columbia dean earlier this week.

They say Dr. Oz is pushing “miracle” weight-loss supplements with no scientific proof that they work.

The New York Ivy League school responded on April 16, issuing a statement to The Associated Press saying only that the school “is committed to the principle of academic freedom and to upholding faculty members’ freedom of expression for statements they make in public discussion”.Dr Oz Columbia University

Led by Dr. Henry Miller of California’s Stanford University, the doctors sent the letter to Lee Goldman, dean of Columbia’s Faculties of Health Sciences and Medicine. The nine other doctors from across the country included Dr. Joel Tepper, a cancer researcher from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, and Dr. Gilbert Ross of the American Council on Science and Health in New York City.

The doctors wrote that Dr. Oz, for years a world-class Columbia cardiothoracic surgeon, “has manifested an egregious lack of integrity by promoting quack treatments and cures in the interest of personal financial gain”.

They said the celebrity TV doctor has “misled and endangered” the public.

Dr. Oz first came to public attention as a frequent television guest of Oprah Winfrey.

For the past five years, he’s been the host of The Dr. Oz Show.

In 2014, Dr. Oz appeared before a Senate panel that accused him of endorsing products that were medically unsound. At the time, Dr. Oz acknowledged that some of the products he advised his viewers to use “don’t have the scientific muster to present as fact”.

As vice chair of Columbia’s surgery department, Dr. Mehmet Oz still occasionally teaches, said Douglas Levy, spokesman for the Columbia University Medical Center.

The Steve Harvey Show was named outstanding informative talk show, while Steve Harvey also won the best game show award for Family Feud.

For the first time this year, the Daytime Emmys offered awards for Spanish language shows – winners included Telemundo’s Un Nuevo Dia as best morning program.

The ceremony, which aired on TV until last year, was only streamed online this year. The move reflects dwindling audiences for daytime television.

Other winners included Jeopardy! which won best game show and The Mind of a Chef, which won best culinary program.

There was a tie for best talk show host between Mehmet Oz for the Dr Oz Show and Katie Couric for Katie.

Katie Couric’s win came the day after she married New York financier John Molner in a small ceremony at her East Hampton home, which was first reported in People magazine.

Kathy Griffin hosted Sunday’s ceremony, with Billy Bush and Mario Lopez among the presenters.


Dr. Mehmet Oz offered to help “drain the swamp” of unscrupulous marketers using his name to peddle so-called miracle pills and cure-alls to millions of Americans desperate to lose weight.

He appeared before the Senate’s consumer protection panel and was scolded by Chairman Claire McCaskill for claims he made about weight-loss aids on his TV show, The Dr. Oz Show.

Dr. Oz, a cardiothoracic surgeon, acknowledged that his language about green coffee and other supplements has been “flowery” and promised to publish a list of specific products he thinks can help America shed pounds and get healthy – beyond eating less and moving more. On his show, Dr. Oz never endorsed specific companies or brands but more generally praised some supplements as fat busters.

Claire McCaskill took Dr. Oz to task for a 2012 show in which he proclaimed that green coffee extract was a “magic weight loss cure for every body type”.

Dr. Oz insisted he believes in the supplements he talks about on his show as short-term crutches, and even has his family try them. But there’s no long-term miracle pill out there without diet and exercise, he said.

Within weeks of Dr. Oz’s comments about green coffee – which refers to the unroasted seeds or beans of coffee – a Florida-based operation began marketing a dietary supplement called Pure Green Coffee, with claims that the chlorogenic acid found in the coffee beans could help people lose 17 pounds and cut body fat by 16% in 22 weeks.

The company, according to federal regulators, featured footage from The Dr. Oz Show, to sell its supplement.

Dr. Oz has no association with the company and received no money from sales.

Last month, the Federal Trade Commission sued the sellers behind Pure Green Coffee and accused them of making bogus claims and deceiving consumers.

The 39th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards showered General Hospital with five trophies, including best drama, while giving Regis Philbin a fond farewell as a departing talk-show host.

NBC’s Today show won as best morning show and the syndicated Jeopardy! was named best game show at the annual ceremony Saturday.

Live with Regis and Kelly was saluted as best entertainment talk show (its first-ever nod in that category) and for best talk-show hosts. Regis Philbin ended his long run as its co-host last November, with a replacement yet to be named to join Kelly Ripa as the syndicated series continues.

Heather Tom, who won as best lead actress for CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful, made history as the first to win in that category after having previously won as both best younger actress and supporting actress.

Anthony Geary won as lead actor for General Hospital. The ABC soap also won for supporting actress (Nancy Lee Grahn), supporting actor (Jonathan Jackson), and directing team.

The syndicated Dr. Oz was named best informative talk show.

Bill Geddie, longtime associate of Barbara Walters and executive producer of her ABC talk show The View, received the life achievement award.

“There’s not a lot of glamour and glory in daytime,” Bill Geddie told the room in his acceptance remarks.

“But when you think about it, we’re all here with the best of intentions: We just love making TV!”

Held in Beverly Hills, California, the 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards was telecast on the HLN channel, having moved to cable for the first time after airing on CBS the past two years. The awards are bestowed by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

The Beverly Hilton, where the presentation originated, was the site only hours earlier of what investigators believe was a murder-suicide. Police responding to a report of a shooting late Friday found a man and a woman dead from gunshot wounds in a guest room. The luxury hotel was also the site of Whitney Houston’s death in February, when the singer drowned in the bathtub of her room.
