Doctor Says Clinton 'Fit To Serve' Ahead Of Campaign Comeback

Hillary Clinton's doctor says the U.S. Democratic presidential nominee is "healthy and fit to serve" as president, as her campaign released updated medical information.

"She is recovering well with antibiotics and rest," said her doctor, Lisa Bardack, in a letter released by her campaign on September 15. "She continues to remain healthy and fit to serve as president of the United States."

Clinton, 68, confirmed that she got "dizzy" and lost her balance at a 9/11 memorial over the weekend. She was diagnosed with pneumonia.

Clinton's health scare raised worries about her fitness for one of the world's most demanding jobs and revived concerns about a tendency toward secrecy that has dogged her run for the White House.

Clinton is expected to return to the campaign trail on September 15.

Meanwhile, Clinton's Republican rival, Donald Trump, reportedly disclosed general information about his health on a medical chat show that was due to air on September 15.

A statement from the show said the interview touches on Trump's cardiovascular health, family medical history, and history of cancer, and declares that Trump is "slightly overweight."
