Former President Bill Clinton says that based on Hillary Clinton’s lifestyle and underlying indicators, she’s almost certainly in better health than her GOP rival Donald Trump, but that it’s tough to know for sure because Mr. Trump hasn’t disclosed as much information as Mr. Clinton’s wife has.

“First of all, it’d be refreshing if there were just one thing in life where he disclosed more than she has, but I don’t think there is so far — not even one,” Mr. Clinton said in an interview that aired Tuesday on “CBS This Morning.”

“I think her lifestyle and her underlying indicators from blood pressure to amount of exercise to everything else means it’s almost certain she’s in better health than her opponent,” Mr. Clinton said.

“But we don’t know because he hasn’t disclosed,” he said. “She’s already disclosed much more health information than he has.”

Mr. Trump, 70, said he plans to release the results from a recent physical when they come in, and Mrs. Clinton’s campaign indicated Monday that they would soon release more medical information as well.

On Sunday, Mrs. Clinton, 68, left a 9/11 memorial ceremony early and video showing her appearing to stumble as she got into a vehicle later surfaced. Her team later revealed she had been diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday, and her doctor said she had gotten “overheated” at the event.

“Rarely, but on more than one occasion over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing’s happened to her, when she just got severely dehydrated,” Mr. Clinton said. “And she’s worked like a demon, as you know, as secretary of state and as a senator, and in the years since.”

Mrs. Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, canceled plans to travel to the West Coast on a fundraising swing Monday and Tuesday as a result of her health.

Mr. Clinton said it’s not possible that she’ll be away for weeks from the campaign trail.

“No, not a shot. I’ll be lucky to hold her back another day,” he said.
