Bill Clinton was released from hospital in Southern California. He was treated there because of a urological infection. The media recalled that since the former president left the White House in 2001, he has struggled with health problems. This time – according to the statements of his spokesman – he experienced the infection in good health.
75-year-old Clinton was rushed to hospital on Tuesday due to urological infection. CNN reports that he left the facility with his wife Hillary, the former secretary of state. It was reported that he raised a thumbs up when journalists asked about his well-being.
After the ex-president’s discharge, the statement was issued by Dr. Alpesh N. Amin, executive director of the Department of Medicine at the University of California, Irvine.
“The fever and white blood cell count have normalized. Clinton is coming home to New York and he will continue his antibiotics there. We were honored to be able to treat him, and we would continue to monitor his progress in his recovery,” he wrote.
On Saturday, a spokesman for former president Angel Uren said Clinton had “made excellent progress” in the last 24 hours of treatment.
“He is in a great mood and spends time with his family, meets friends and watches football,” reported Urena at the time.
The state of health of the former president of the USA
Since Clinton left the White House in 2001, he has been struggling with health problems, the AP agency recalled. In 2004, he underwent four bypass surgery after prolonged chest pain and shortness of breath. In 2005, he returned to the hospital for surgery on a partially collapsed lung, and in 2010, he was implanted with a pair of stents in a coronary artery.
In response to health threats, the former president is on a largely vegan diet that has made him lose weight and feel better, according to AP.
