Hillary Clinton and Dr. Lisa Bardack
(Health News) In 2015, Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign released a health statement confirming hypothyroidism as well as allergies.
Dr. Lisa Bardack, her physician, said she regularly takes the thyroid hormone Armour Thyroid and the anticoagulant drug Coumadin to prevent blood clots, as well as an antihistamine for seasonal pollen allergies and vitamin B12, and that she doesn’t smoke and only drinks alcohol occasionally.
Armor Thyroid is often given to patients with an underactive thyroid, thyroid enlargement, or to manage thyroid cancer.
After taking a fall in her home in December 2012, she was given blood thinners for a blood clot in her head, and is still taking them as a precautionary measure.
