Trump in 'excellent health', says doctor after medical exam

Trump in 'excellent health', says doctor after medical exam

Dr. Ronny Jackson gave the exam to Trump at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., right before the president departed for a holiday weekend at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla.

Speculation surrounding Mr Trump's mental health has been fuelled, not for the first time, by last week's publication of the book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by journalist and author Michael Wolff. But beware a poor cholesterol reading.

Trump was unsatisfied and asked again, the officials said. And Jackson will present some details of his examination from the briefing room.

No, the exam will not evaluate Trump's mental health. "I think it's going to go very well", Trump said. "I'll be very surprised if it doesn't", he went on to add.

Physical exams for presidents have been a norm since Richard Nixon, according to ABC News, but they aren't required. But for the past several decades, all presidents have.

But, Mr Trump leads a largely sedentary lifestyle compared to his most recent predecessors, and has said he gets most of his exercise playing golf.

While the exams are not mandatory, modern presidents typically undergo them regularly and release a doctor's report declaring they are "fit for duty".

Past presidential examinations have included vitals such as height, weight, body mass index, resting heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen saturation in the blood.

The president has pushed back against suggestions he's mentally unfit, declaring himself "a very stable genius".

The president's doctor will no doubt welcome these facts but is likely to be quite concerned about his patient's eating habits.

Dr. Ronny Jackson, who performed the exam at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, described Trump as being in "excellent health". In an interview with The New York Times past year, Bornstein revealed that Trump takes a small dose of finasteride, a drug that is marketed as Propecia, to treat male-pattern baldness; the drug lowers levels of prostate-specific antigen, an enzyme made by the prostate.

The 2016 letter put Trump's blood pressure and cholesterol measurements in the healthy range, though he uses a cholesterol-lowering statin medication.

President Donald Trump, 71, is scheduled to undergo a physical examination.

Trump does not smoke, and he does not consume alcohol. His diet is heavy on fast food, red meat and Diet Coke.

What precisely will be disclosed about the President's health isn't yet clear.

The White House determines what data will be released from the exam. Here's what we know about these presidential health tests.

"You have to remember if there is something wrong with a president that kicks him out of office, everyone who comes with him leaves". The White House did not provide specific results of those tests.
