A note from Hillary Clinton’s doctor, Lisa Bardack, discloses some additional information about the presidential candidate’s health.
Hillary Clinton is releasing an updated doctor’s note Wednesday afternoon as her campaign tries to get past the political problems caused by keeping her recent pneumonia diagnosis secret.
The release came amid calls for both Clinton and Donald Trump, two of the oldest presidential nominees in history, to reveal more about their personal health.
Earlier on Wednesday, Trump shared some new medical information during a taping of the “The Dr. Oz Show,” which will be broadcast Thursday. Though it is unclear how much Trump shared, it appears neither candidate has released detailed medical records.
Donald Trump added new mystery to the question of how healthy he is, recording an episode of "The Dr. Oz Show" on Wednesday with what the show said were results from a recent physical.
The show will not air until Thursday, so it is unclear how much detail, if any, the Republican nominee went into with the controversial television doctor.
Trump, a 70-year-old with a penchant for eating fast food, has tried to highlight what he and his personal doctor have said is ideal health as the Republican nominee questions the strength and stamina of Hillary Clinton, who abruptly left an event Sunday with what her campaign later described as pneumonia.
Hillary Clinton's campaign, which has been touting upcoming appointments for the ailing candidate, said Wednesday that she would meet next week with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Sisi and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko during the United Nations General Assembly.
The meetings, confirmed by an aide, offer Clinton a few political opportunities, in addition to limiting the sense that she has been hampered by her bout with pneumonia. They remind voters she is on a world stage, and they may distract some from Clinton Global Initiative meetings, which will coincide with the U.N. assembly.
The Clinton Global Initiative and the related Clinton Foundation have been the subject of widespread scrutiny and charges of conflict of interest.
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell labeled fellow Republican Donald Trump a "national disgrace” and a cheerleader of the “racist” birther movement that questioned President Obama’s legitimacy, according to emails that appear to have been obtained by a hacker.
The emails were first reported by BuzzFeed News on Tuesday.
The website did not say how it obtained the emails, but when Powell declined to comment about their contents, he said, “I’m not denying it.”
Donald Trump's campaign is seeking to downplay the extent to which he will discuss his personal health in a taped interview with Dr. Mehmet Oz on Wednesday.
Campaign officials say they expect Oz will discuss broader health, family and well-being issues with Trump and only touch briefly on Trump's personal health, without getting into the weeds of his medical history. The campaign said it will release a report on the results of Trump's medical records separately, most likely this week.
Still, the interview remains a wild card, given Trump's inclination to improvise and Oz's comments this week suggesting that he would indeed be talking about Trump's personal health.
Dramatic video has emerged of people chasing down a man believed to have punched a 69-year-old woman on oxygen at a Donald Trump rally, showing the escalation of emotions from both protesters and supporters.

Shirley Teeter told a local ABC News affiliate that she attended the event in Asheville, N.C., to protest Trump. She recalls telling supporters outside the rally that they should start learning Russian — alluding to Trump's admiration for Russian President Vladimir Putin. Then, she said, a man in front of her turned around and punched her in the jaw, knocking her down onto her backpack containing her metal oxygen tank.
