After taking a “dispassionate” look at Hillary Clinton’s medical information, Dr. Drew Pinsky says he is “gravely concerned” about her health status.
Pinsky says he reviewed the limited information that has been released with Dr. Robert Huizenga last week.
“Based on the information she has provided, he were gravely concerned not just about her health, but her health care,” the HLN and MTV star said on KABC Tuesday.
“Both of us concluded that if we provided the care she was receiving, we’d be ashamed to show up in a doctors lounge, we’d be laughed out.
“She’s receiving sort of 1950-level sort of care by our evaluation,” he said.
Pinsky was alarmed by the treatments for some of her ailments, particularly for blood clots.
He said she’s been given Armour Thyroid, “which is very unconventional and something we used to use back in the 60s.
“And both (Huizenga) and I went, ‘hmmm, that’s weird.’
“So she goes on Coumadin. That’s weird because Coumadin really isn’t used anymore,” adding surely a presidential candidate would be given a “newer” remedy.
Pinsky noted Clinton has a very rare blood clot in the “collecting system for the celebral spinal fluid,” which he says “guarantees somebody has something wrong with their coagulation system.”
He concluded her health care “looks bizarre.”
He added that she had to wear the prism glasses because she sustained “brain damage,” but he doesn’t believe it’s hurt her cognition.
“Tell us more about that — that’s profound.”
“It just seems she’s getting care from somebody in Arkansas she met when she was a kid,” Pinsky said.
