White House Doctor Says Trump Is In 'Excellent' Physical, Cognitive Health

Doctor says Donald Trump in 'excellent' health

Trump's heart exam was normal, with regular rhythm and no abnormal sounds, which Jackson said led him to conclude with confidence that Trump "has a very strong and a very probable possibility of making it completely through his presidency with no medical issues". He examined the Mr. Trump for three hours last Friday, according to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, marking his first medical check-up since becoming president.

Jackson says Trump's overall health "is excellent". Jackson said Trump scored 30, the highest possible result.

WASHINGTON ― A Navy rear admiral who serves as President Donald Trump's personal physician vouched on Tuesday for his mental fitness, explaining that he gave Trump a dementia screening exam at the president's request, and that Trump aced it. His assessment, released February 28, 2010, found Obama in "excellent health and 'fit for duty, '" and he added, "All clinical data indicate that he will remain so for the duration of his Presidency".

'He has incredibly good genes, ' Jackson also said. He did say that Trump would benefit from losing 10 to 15 pounds from a combination of improving his diet and starting an exercise regimen. Jackson accused doctors who have tried to diagnose Trump from afar of performing "tabloid psychiatry".

Some of Trump's health numbers from the physical were troubling, notably his status as being overweight for his age and height and his elevated cholesterol numbers.

"The good part is that we can build on that pretty easily", Jackson said. His LDL cholesteral was 125, with a total cholesteral reading of 188. Trump has no heart disease and no family history of it.

Trump took office at age 70, making him the oldest incoming USA president. Jackson said the water-gulping incident was a result of Suddafed.

President Trump was given an excellent chance of exceeding the average life expectancy for an American man, which the National Centre for Health Statistics places at 78.6. "I told the president if he had a healthier diet over the last 20 years he might live to be 200".

Mishori said Trump's vital signs, blood tests and physical examinations suggest "he seems to be on track, what you would want to see in a 71-year-old overweight male".

Cognitive assessments aren't routine in standard physicals, though they recently became covered in Medicare's annual wellness visits for seniors.

Most of the comparisons being made are professional athletes, so it stands to reason that Trump could in fact weight 239 pounds but be made up of considerably more fat than those he's being placed next to, who are made up of more muscle (which is denser than fat).
