His doctor says that overall, Sanders is in very good health for a man his age...but also revealed that he suffers from Hypothyroidism...which is the same condition from which Hillary Clinton suffers.

This is not an uncommon condition, especially among people of an advanced age, but apparently, Sanders is currently treating his condition with hormone therapy, which is a good thing as Hypothyroidism has many debilitating symptoms such as fatigue, depression and memory loss. In it's advanced stages, it can lead to heart disease and even death.

We wish Mr. Sanders continued good health as he continues to battle this unfortunate medical issue.



Symptoms of Hypothyroidism

-Fatigue
-Weakness
-Weight gain or increased difficulty losing weight
-Coarse, dry hair
-Dry, rough pale skin
-Hair loss
-Cold intolerance (you can't tolerate cold temperatures like those around you)
-Muscle cramps and frequent muscle aches
-Constipation
-Depression
-Irritability
-Memory loss
-Abnormal menstrual cycles
-Decreased libido

Sanders in 'very good health' doctor says - but reveals that the 74-year-old has suffered from gout and is on medication to treat the same thyroid condition as Clinton

The U.S. senator has been treated in the past for gout, the most common side effect of which is swollen joints but can also result in kidney stones

He is also on medication to treat hypothyroidism - the same disorder that afflicts his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton

The 74-year-old Vermont senator had also been treated in the past for ailments that include high cholesterol and laryngitis

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders' doctor said today that the 74-year-old is in 'overall very good health.'

But according to the medical records released by Sanders campaign this afternoon, the U.S. senator has been treated in the past for gout, the most common side effect of which is swollen joints but can also result in kidney stones, and has a thyroid condition.

Sanders is on medication to treat hypothyroidism, the letter from his physician said - the same disorder that afflicts Sanders' Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

The one-page letter released by Sanders' campaign said the 74-year-old Vermont senator had also been treated in the past for ailments that include high cholesterol, laryngitis and a disease that afflicts the colon and can affect the bowels.

He's also had 'superficial skin tumors' removed.

Sanders underwent hernia surgery earlier this year but had a clean recovery. His last check up was in November of 2016, it said, and he has no history of cardiovascular diseases that would precede a heart attack.

'You are in overall very good health and active in your professional work, and recreational lifestyle without limitation,' wrote Sanders' doctor Brian Monahan, the attending physician of the U.S. Congress.

He said his office has treated Sanders for 26 years, ever since Sanders was elected to federal office.

The letter said the senator takes levothyroxine daily, which is used to treat hyperthyroidism, an condition involving an underactive thyroid gland and results in a deficit of certain crucial hormones that affect human metabolism and other chemical reactions in the body.

Hypothyroid patients who don't take a daily dose of hormones can suffer from obesity, heart disease, infertility and joint pain, another health issue Sanders has had in the past, according to the letter.

Sanders on occasion takes indomethacin, it also said, an anti-inflammatory used to treat arthritis and gout.

OMG! He's got a boo-boo on his knee! LOL! Which is about as common as hypothyroidism, which I also have, and I take levothyroxine daily, too. Me and Bernie... We be mates!

You're so funny!

Really grasping at straws now, eh?

I have hypothyroidism and have had since I was about 22. Children also have it. The drug industry has perfectly created the hormone that goes on in the thyroid. One little pill a day.

Done. No problems. I think you need to find something a little more in-depth and significant to bash, cause hypothyroidism ain't it.

Who is bashing? Candidate's medical reports are released by their physician to the media for dissemination.
It's a newsworthy coincidence that the two top democratic front-runners share the same medical condition.

I know, someone calling the democrats a circus? Everyone knows that you're just supposed to call the GOP a circus!

Okay. Didn't mean to insult you, if I did. I'm just saying it's a very common thing to have. It's not a disease, it's more of a condition. Take the pill, and you never know anything's 'wrong'.

The only thing I've noticed when I skip the pill, is fatigue and I get chilled easily. It regulates your metabolism. But admittedly without the med, I'd be tired and cold all the time.

So there. Let's make up.

No harm done.
I don't believe I called it a disease...and I also mentioned it was a common condition.
It can be serious...but is, as you and others say, easily treated with medication.
I'm glad you're doing well too. Let's be friends.

I've heard it argued that Hillary's hypothyroidism is possibly related to Hughes/antiphospholipid syndrome.
From what I've read, it's far more serious.



What are the symptoms of Hughes/antiphospholipid syndrome?

Hughes/antiphospholipid syndrome can cause both low-grade symptoms and potentially fatal conditions as a result of blood clots.

Some people are affected by symptoms more than others, while others may have the antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL) but do not develop any blood clots and/or have pregnancy complications. As of yet, we simply don’t know the reason why these anomalies exist because so much research still needs to be carried out.

The typical low-grade symptoms of Hughes/antiphospholipid syndrome are:

-headache and migraine
-memory problems
-dizziness and balance difficulties
-visual disturbances
-blotchy skin (livedo reticularis)
-arthralgia
-fatigue

The common acute conditions caused by Hughes/antiphospholipid syndrome are:

-thrombosis – DVT
-strokes and mini-strokes (Transient Ischaemic Attacks)
-heart attacks
-pulmonary embolism (blood clot on the lung)

As Hughes/antiphospholipid syndrome is a blood disorder and blood flows throughout the entire body, nearly any organ can be affected. Consequently, the brain, eyes, ears, lungs, heart, kidneys, liver, bowel, skin, nails, bones and joints can potentially all be affected to varying degrees.

The brain is particularly susceptible in Hughes/antiphospholipid syndrome patients, as the ‘sticky blood’ can impair circulation and limit oxygen which can result in a variety of low-grade neurological symptoms.

Remember - it is NOT necessary to have all the symptoms to be diagnosed with Hughes/antiphospholipid syndrome.

Yeah, my wife suffers from it--it sucks. But hers is a bit different, as she had her entire thyroid removed because it went hyper after her first pregnancy. She was in the military at the time--I think civilian doctors would have tried treating it before removing it, but it is what it is.

Having a lack of one is even worse than just having a malfunctioning one, as the docs can never seem to get her levels right, and they all think she needs to be on different levels of the meds.

She just recently switched to a "naturethroid" medication, which is naturally derived from pigs' thyroid, I believe. We'll see how that goes...

That's actually what Hillary takes. Different name, same stuff from pigs. Hope it works well for your wife.


Yeah, Trump's physical health is really good... But... he clearly has those psychological issues of extreme insecurity and narcissism... We may have to see how THAT goes in a world leader...



A narcissist is someone who shows overwhelming arrogance and a delicate self-esteem that is easily hurt by any form of criticism
Trump 'textbook' Narcissist



"What happens when another world leader who is a loose cannon doesn't give Trump the admiration that he feels he deserves? We can be sure that notoriously anti-American dictators like Kim Jong-un of North Korea or Iran's Supreme Leader Khamenei aren't going to give him any respect, let alone praise," Azarian says.


I think I'd rather go with Bernie (and, God forbid, even Hillary) with their sluggish thyroids...
