7:05 am
head or her leg, they will not say. they have said she has other issues from the concussion but won't swhat they are. >> it's puzzling, the lack of information, given the republican charges of benghazi flu or a diplomatic illness when they were failing to believe she was as sick as she was. >> reporter: the clintons are notoriously private. they just don't say much, especially about issues like this. >> have you dealt with something like this, where there's so little information forthcoming? >> reporter: i can't say i have. over the last few weeks, they've come back at us saying you're making it sound too serious. clearly, there are serious things going on. it raises more questions when you know so very little. >> all right, thank you so much. we're joined by chief health and medical editor dr. richard besser. we know she's been treated with
7:06 am
anti-coagulant drugs. does that tell you that the clot is not in her lungs or brain? >> everyone agrees that the most likely scenario is she has another clot in her leg. that type of clot is called a deep vein thrombosis. she probably had a period of pro longed time in bed with the headaches and dizziness. that is a risk factor. >> we know that this is the kind of clot that people who travel on airplanes for long distances get, people who are immobile get. it can be deadly. it killed david bloom. >> you worry about the clot breaking off, traveling sba your heart and into your lungs. your blood pressure can drop suddenly. you put someone on an anti-coing
7:07 am
a lant, that can keep it from happening. >> how serious is a blood clot? >> in her leg, probably not serious. a few months on anti-coagulants. a blood clot in her head is a different situation. if you fall and hit your head and you have bleeding in your head, you wouldn't put someone on an anti-coagulant. you have a central vein in your head that can cause clots with a severe head injury. thinks are not adds up. i expect we'll learn more today to shed light on that. >> this neb lus other health issues we keep hearing about. what could that be? >> we haven't seen her since december 7th. you can have trouble concentrating after a concussion, weakness in your body. we're not getting a lot of information.
