WASHINGTON - Hillary Rodham Clinton says if she seeks the White House again she will release her medical records in the same manner of past presidential candidates.

The former secretary of state tells ABC News that she would, in her words, "do what other candidates have done. Absolutely."

Clinton was hospitalized in late 2012 after doctors discovered a blood clot in a vein near her right ear. It followed an incident in which she fell at home and suffered a concussion.

Presidential candidates typically release medical records once it becomes clear they will win their party's nomination.

Clinton did not release medical records in 2008 prior to losing the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama.

The potential 2016 presidential candidate says she expects to be on blood thinners the rest of her life.
