WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Democrat Hillary Clinton is healthy and "fit to serve" with no lingering effects from a 2012 concussion she sustained as secretary of state, her personal physician said on Friday.

The Clinton presidential campaign released a statement from her doctor, Lisa Bardack of Mount Kisco, New York, that detailed the health status of the 67-year-old Clinton.

"She is in excellent physical condition and fit to serve as president of the United States," the statement said.

One of the questions about Clinton's health has been whether she had completely recovered from a concussion that resulted when she fainted in December 2012 after contracting a stomach virus while traveling abroad and becoming dehydrated.

She had been forced to wear special glasses for a while to counteract double vision that resulted from the concussion. The doctor's statement said Clinton's symptoms were resolved in 2013.

The statement said Clinton suffers from hypothyroidism and seasonal allergies and had bouts of deep vein thrombosis in 1998 and 2009.
