Former President Bill Clinton was on LKL last night – he spoke to our guest host, Sanjay Gupta, about the new administration's efforts to achieve healthcare reform, and also discussed his own health.
GUPTA: One thing I notice when I was talking to you - we talked about this before - when you point with your finger -
CLINTON: Sometimes it shakes. See it's a little shake, no shake here. I've been tested for it. I don't have Parkinson's.
GUPTA: Don't have it.
CLINTON: The doctor told me as people age, they become more vulnerable, for example, to having these muscles. Like if I write a lot.
CLINTON: Or play video games or, you know, just do anything like that, anything with a lot of my fingers, and these tighten up, or if I'm tired, if I'm working hard, it will cause your hands to shake. So see that's pretty calm today, a little bit of shake, none over here. And some days they both shake, some days none of them do. And I was quite concerned about it, because if I had Parkinson's, I wanted to know, so I could prepare.
I had it tested and the doctor says, no, it's just a normal aging phenomenon.
