Hillary Clinton released medical records on Wednesday providing new details about both her pneumonia diagnosis and general health — just hours after Donald Trump offered some new information about his own well being in a taped appearance on the "Dr. Oz Show."
The dueling releases shed some new light on Clinton's condition and added little to an already-thin amount of known details about Trump's health.
A letter from Clinton's doctor states that the Democratic presidential nominee last Friday was diagnosed with mild, non-contagious bacterial pneumonia. "She is recovering well with antibiotics and rest. She continues to remain healthy and fit to serve as president of the United States," said Dr. Lisa Bardack, Clinton's doctor.
Dr. Bardack also revealed she evaluated Clinton a week earlier, on Sept. 2 for a fever, congestion and fatigue.
"Over the next several days as she traveled, her congestion worsened and she developed a cough. She was advised to see me when she returned from her travels for further testing," Dr. Bardack wrote. During the follow-up, a non-contrast chest CT scan revealed the pneumonia.
The release of Clinton's records came just hours after Trump provided some new medical information of his own in a taped appearance of "The Dr. Oz Show," which is scheduled to air Thursday. Trump handed the show's host a letter containing new details from a recent examination Dr. Harold Bornstein — the same physician that vouched for Trump's health in a brief letter he wrote in just five minutes earlier this year. That information has not been provided to reporters by the campaign.
Dr. Mehmet Oz told NBC News after the taping he was "surprised" Trump provided him with the information.
"I looked at them and tried to process it pretty quickly and I got to say as a doctor, if he was my patient, they are good for a man of his age," Dr. Oz said.
Those in the audience told NBC News after the interview that Dr. Oz gave Trump a clean bill of health. "Even Dr. Oz said that, you know, if it was his patient he would be extremely happy and just, kind of, send him on his way," audience member Bryan Manzali told NBC News following the taping in New York City.
"Other than apparently his body mass index being a little high, the man is in incredibly good shape. Dr. Oz was very, very impressed," said Matthew Stevens, who also was in the audience.
Clinton's campaign released a far more detailed look at her health and some of the highlights include:
Clinton is currently taking Armor Thyroid, Coumadin, Levaquin (temporarily), Clarinex and B-12 as needed. Her blood pressure is 100/70; heart rate of 70; respiratory rate of 18; temperature of 97.8 and pulse-oximetry of 99 percent.
Clinton's vaccinations are "up to date" and include Prevnar and Pneumovax.
She has had a normal mammogram and breast ultrasound. Lab testing (vitamin D, CBC, fasting blood glucose, comprehensive metabolic panel, hemoglobin A1-C, vitamin B-12) is "normal," including cholesterol of 189, LDL of 103, HDL of 56 and triglycerides of 159.
Dr. Bardack said, "the remainder of her complete physical exam was normal and she is in excellent mental condition."
The Clinton campaign on Wednesday also released a letter from vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine's doctor, who declared him to be in "excellent health" and recommended that he add a daily vitamin D supplement.
