In her summary of Clinton’s health, Dr. Bardack notes that the Democratic presidential nominee was evaluated on September 2 “for a 24-hour history of a low grade fever, congestion and fatigue. On examination, she was noted to have a temperature of 99.4; her vital signs were otherwise normal as was her physical exam. She was advised to rest, put on a short course of antibiotics and continued on her allergy medications for an upper respiratory tract infection in the setting of her seasonal allergies.”
On September 9, the doctor said, Clinton underwent “a non-contrast chest CT scan, including a CTA calcium score.”
“The results of the CT scan revealed a small right middlelobe pneumonia; her coronary calcium score was again zero,” the letter reads. “[Clinton] was treated with antibiotics for pneumonia and advised to rest.”
The note goes on to say that Clinton’s “current medications include Armor Thyroid, Coumadin dosed as directed, Levaquin (for a total ten days), Clarinex, as well as B12 as needed.”
