On Tuesday, the Physician to the President, Dr. Sean Conley, released a comprehensive medical report on President Donald Trump. According to the report, the President is in very good health and has the physical and mental drive to serve another term as President of the United States.
The release of the medical report comes amid questions about the age and health of former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. Biden is 77 years old and the oldest major-party presidential candidate ever to run for office.
The medical report noted that Trump is 6 feet, 3 inches tall and weighs 243 pounds, and his total cholesterol is 165 milligrams per deciliter. The report also said that he takes a daily regimen of nine medications, including Propecia for male-pattern baldness, aspirin, and a statin to reduce his cholesterol.
The report makes no mention of specific tests taken to determine Trump’s cognitive or mental health. Conley did write that the President’s “laboratory results were stable and within the normal range” and that he has “remained stable over the past two years since his last formal physical exam.”
The medical report is similar to the report previously released on Biden, which noted that he is 6 feet, 0 inches tall, weighs 176 pounds, and that his total cholesterol is 150 milligrams per deciliter. It also noted that Biden takes a daily regimen of an aspirin and two medications to limit his exposure to environmental allergens.
