UPDATED AUGUST 17, 2016 AT 4:41 PM EDT -- (SEE BOTTOM) Hillary Clinton's medical records have been leaked to the public and they are devastating. According to her Doctor, Mrs. Clinton suffers from "Dementia, Seizures and Black-outs." In fact, the Doctor made note that Clinton's conditions are "considerably worse" than in 2013. . . see for yourself:
According to the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, "Subcortical Vascular Dementia" is defined as follows:
Subcortical Vascular Dementia. Subcortical vascular dementia, also called Binswanger's disease, is caused by widespread, microscopic areas of damage to the brain resulting from the thickening and narrowing (atherosclerosis) of arteries that supply blood to the subcortical areas of the brain.
The medical definition above makes clear that Hillary's condition is also known as "Binswanger's disease (BD)." We checked with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and they offer the following information:
Binswanger's disease (BD), also called subcortical vascular dementia, is a type of dementia caused by widespread, microscopic areas of damage to the deep layers of white matter in the brain. The damage is the result of the thickening and narrowing (atherosclerosis) of arteries that feed the subcortical areas of the brain. Atherosclerosis (commonly known as "hardening of the arteries") is a systemic process that affects blood vessels throughout the body. It begins late in the fourth decade of life and increases in severity with age. As the arteries become more and more narrowed, the blood supplied by those arteries decreases and brain tissue dies. A characteristic pattern of BD-damaged brain tissue can be seen with modern brain imaging techniques such as CT scans or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The symptoms associated with BD are related to the disruption of subcortical neural circuits that control what neuroscientists call executive cognitive functioning: short-term memory, organization, mood, the regulation of attention, the ability to act or make decisions, and appropriate behavior. The most characteristic feature of BD is psychomotor slowness - an increase in the length of time it takes, for example, for the fingers to turn the thought of a letter into the shape of a letter on a piece of paper. Other symptoms include forgetfulness (but not as severe as the forgetfulness of Alzheimer's disease), changes in speech, an unsteady gait, clumsiness or frequent falls, changes in personality or mood (most likely in the form of apathy, irritability, and depression), and urinary symptoms that aren't caused by urological disease. Brain imaging, which reveals the characteristic brain lesions of BD, is essential for a positive diagnosis.
There is no specific course of treatment for BD. Treatment is symptomatic. People with depression or anxiety may require antidepressant medications such as the serotonin-specific reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) sertraline or citalopram. Atypical antipsychotic drugs, such as risperidone and olanzapine, can be useful in individuals with agitation and disruptive behavior. Recent drug trials with the drug memantine have shown improved cognition and stabilization of global functioning and behavior. The successful management of hypertension and diabetes can slow the progression of atherosclerosis, and subsequently slow the progress of BD. Because there is no cure, the best treatment is preventive, early in the adult years, by controlling risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, and smoking.
BD is a progressive disease; there is no cure. Changes may be sudden or gradual and then progress in a stepwise manner. BD can often coexist with Alzheimer's disease. Behaviors that slow the progression of high blood pressure, diabetes, and atherosclerosis -- such as eating a healthy diet and keeping healthy wake/sleep schedules, exercising, and not smoking or drinking too much alcohol -- can also slow the progression of BD.
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) conducts research related to BD in its laboratories at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and also supports additional research through grants to major medical institutions across the country. Much of this research focuses on finding better ways to prevent, treat, and ultimately cure neurological disorders, such as BD.
No rational person could vote such a sickly individual into the most important political office in the world. To do so would be utterly irresponsible; even outright reckless.
Look, it's not Hillary's fault that she's sick. She didn't intend to get this way, but she is, in fact, this way. It's sad. I do not wish these health problems on her or upon anyone. But the fact is, these health problems flatly disqualify Mrs. Clinton from being President. We cannot have a person with Dementia with her finger on the nuclear button.
Donald Trump for President.
A statement about these purported Medical Records has been issued by the Doctor treating Hillary Clinton as follows:
It is interesting that the Doctor made this statement through Hillary's CAMPAIGN, but neither the Doctor nor her Medical Group returned several telephone calls I made to them seeking comment about these medical records.
Why is it that the doctor kept silent about the alleged "false" records until the Hillary Campaign got her to speak about them? If the records were "false" then the records were false when this story was first published and there would be no reason to say otherwise or to remain silent. Yet the Doctor kept quiet and did not call me back.
Suffice it to say I am skeptical of this Denial. However, since there has now been an official, public denial, I publish that denial in the interest of fairness and full disclosure. I don;t believe the denial, but I publish it anyway.
