Trump's doctor has "no concerns" about US President's health

Jackson said the 71-year-old president is 75 inches tall (6 foot 3) and weighs 239 pounds.

Trump has faced growing questions about his mental health, prompting dozens of psychologists, psychiatrists and mental health professionals to send a letter to the president's physician on Thursday urging him to evaluate Trump's neurological health.

The results of President Donald Trump's first formal medical exam since taking office were announced Tuesday, and the big news was that the physician involved, Navy Rear Adm. Ronny L. Jackson, said the 71-year-old president received a flawless score on a cognitive test.

He gets plenty of exercise on the golf course and at the White House complex, the president told Reuters on Wednesday.

As far as he knows, Jackson said this is the first time a doctor has performed a cognitive assessment on a president. Several said Trump's goal should be to get his LDL below 100, or even under 70. That means the percentage of adults age 20 and above who are overweight or obese is 70.7 per cent, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said.

President Donald Trump's doctor says he's confident that Trump has a "very strong and a very probable possibility" of completing his presidency "with no medical issues".

"That's a really high LDL", Scripps Research Institute cardiologist Dr. Eric Topol said. The President is one pound shy of being considered obese, according to these calculations. "Just looking at the lab value, you would raise a big red flag". And I said, "I can go much longer than this if you want me to'. That is completely contradicted".

'They were surprised. And they said, "Well you can stop now, that's wonderful". News reports in recent weeks have also shed light on some of Trump's dietary habits: he reportedly drinks 12 Diet Cokes a day, and he regularly orders from McDonald's, according to Michael Wolff's book Fire and Fury.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Jackson will attend her briefing Tuesday to provide a more complete readout on Trump's physical health.

Navy doctor Ronny Jackson says his assessment is based on Trump's cardiac assessment.

Regarding his physical health, he said he had dieted successfully before. "He doesn't smoke, he doesn't have diabetes - a lot of the traditional risk factors, he doesn't have". "He wasn't the least bit concerned that he had anything to hide, so he actively asked me to include that in". "Technically, he has nonclinical coronary atherosclerosis", Jackson told reporters. He landed a ideal score on that, identifying animals and connecting the dots on letter/number sequences The test is supposed to detect Alzheimer's disease or other mental impairments.

"So the president has heart disease", he added.

While the results of the president's physical are private, it has been tradition for the president to allow his doctor to provide some details of the examination results to the public. Tests of the liver, kidney and thyroid were all normal.

Heart disease and stroke kill 800,000 Americans each year. That means he's gained three pounds over the a year ago, according to his last official records.

"That tells you there's some calcium", he said.
