    Following massive speculation about Hillary Clinton's health after the candidate collapsed at a 9/11 memorial, the campaign has released more information regarding her medical history.

    In a statement released by the campaign late Wednesday afternoon, Clinton’s longtime physician Dr. Lisa Bardack, asserted that she had visited with the candidate earlier in the day and she “was normal and she is in excellent mental condition."

    Bardack asserted that Clinton is “recovering well with antibiotics and rest” from the pneumonia diagnosis last week, and that “she continues to remain healthy and fit to serve as President of the United States."

    The physician noted that Clinton's blood levels have been "relatively stable," and that she has had several allergy flares over the past year, which has been consistent throughout her life.

    Clinton is on several medications, including for her thyroid, which include Armor Thyroid, Coumadin, Levaquin, Clarinex, and B12 "as needed."

    The statement also asserts that Clinton's lab work was normal and her blood pressure is 100/70. Her mammogram and breast ultrasound's are also normal.

    The campaign's release comes three days after Clinton was caught on camera collapsing after struggling to walk, as she was placed into her black van and taken to her daughter's house. The campaign initially claimed that she had "overheated," but did not immediately disclose that she had been diagnosed with pneumonia the Friday before.

    According to the new statement, the type of pneumonia is a non-contageous bacterial strand. Her doctor has advised her to rest for five days and take an antibiotic for the next 10 days. She is scheduled to return to the campaign trail tomorrow in North Carolina.

    Her campaign is now calling for Donald Trump to release more detailed medical information, after he reportedly released some of his records on an episode of Dr. Oz which will air nationwide on Thursday.

    Included with Clinton's statement was an accompanying release from Tim Kaine's physician. 

    "You are in overall excellent health and active in your professional work, and physical fitness endeavors without limitation. I recommend that you add a daily vitamin D supplement of 1000 Units per day to your diet," the letter from Kaine's doctor, Brian P. Monahan, stated.
