A rational mind would expect Trump to at least pretend to keep up and release actual medical records? That insane letter written by that quack was kind of insulting to everyone, even his followers.
He stated yesterday that he had a physical and medical tests a week ago and would be releasing them and "specific numbers" regarding the medical tests when he has the results.
(If he follows through on that, that is. I will be very annoyed if he doesn't, BTW.)
During my 19 years as a board certified internist I have taken care of many hundreds of patients with pneumonia. The story about Hillary Clinton being diagnosed with pneumonia raises a red flag as to the cause. It could simply have been a community acquired pneumonia, which means she contracted it as a healthy person living her usual life.
This happens occasionally, even to healthy people. If this is the case the timing certainly is unfortunate for her given where we are in the election cycle though it doesn’t portend anything ominous.
Aspiration pneumonia occurs when fluids and food particles that normally enter the esophagus instead enter the windpipe and lungs. It is commonly seen in neurological conditions like strokes and Parkinson’s disease or similar diseases where the nerves to the swallowing mechanism are not working properly.
This is especially worrisome because it is likely to recur given the underlying, usually incurable disease process and because it can be a life-threatening event.
Someone should demand full and immediate disclosure of her medical records. She should also be the subject of a swallow study to confirm that she can swallow normally (if one hasn’t been done already).
Every voter should know what’s at stake.
At this point, I think her medical records are no longer important. Her health is failing. Be it Parkinson's or something else, it's only going to get worse. I don't think she'll be competing at the debates. She'll be stepping down soon.
