White House doctor says President Trump is 'very healthy'

В США рассказали насколько здоров Трамп

The results of the survey

Trump's total cholesterol of 223 would be considered high under typical standards.

Trump took Propecia, an anti-baldness medication, daily and also took medicine to lower cholesterol. If I didn't watch what I eat, I wouldn't have the cardiac and overall health that he has.

Dr. Ronnie Jackson went into greater detail Tuesday with Trump's first presidential physical exam taken Friday at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda.

You can view the written summary from Dr. Jackson here.

The cognitive test was the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, which looks for signs of dementia or Alzheimer's, an incurable, degenerative brain disease.

According to a calculator provided by the National Institutes of Health's National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, Trump's BMI is 29.9. He reminded reporters that as chief White House physician, he sometimes provides medical care for reporters who get sick while covering the president.

"I've spent nearly every day with the president since past year", Dr. Jackson, whose office is located "directly across the hall" from Trump's private elevator, said. "I don't necessarily feel like it's been that way at this event, so we'll see how things pan out". But she said she didn't "dispute the president was using tough language".

Jackson explained that this cognitive screening is different from a psychiatric exam.

Apparently, Trump also passed with flying colors: He scored 30 out of 30 on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, which is created to detect early signs of memory loss and other neurologic functions.

Finally, delayed recall is tested and the doctor will circle back to the list of words they told the patient in the memory test and the patient is asked to remember as many words as possible.

What about the president repeating himself?

His and Tehseen Poonawala's petitions demanding probe by an independent agency virtually split the Supreme Court down the middle. But in a letter to the Chief Justice of Bombay High Court in 2015, he had demanded an investigation into his father's death.

The doctor says he's found "no reason whatsoever" to think the President has any issues with his thought process.

What about his slurred speech?

"I don't know", Jackson said.

"Does the president do anything at all right now in terms of exercise?".

He recalled that the president was on Sudafed days leading up to the December 6 speech where he discussed moving our embassy and appeared to slur his words. Jackson now lives in Silver Spring, Maryland, with his wife and three children, according to a biography page posted by Harvard University which ran a fellowship in disaster medicine with which he was involved.

"He has absolutely no cognitive or mental issues whatsoever", Dr Jackson said.

"There's nothing at all that's concerning to me", the doctor stated.

"It's really an honour for me, " said Nasreddine, now affiliated with McGill and Sherbrooke universities in Quebec.

The president is "more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part", his physician allowed. He'd like the president to lose 10 to 15 pounds (4.5 to 6.8 kilograms) over the next year.

"We want something that's low impact - we don't want to give him joint issues", he said. "We're looking at his vascular health overall".

The primary suggestion Trump was given as a result of the exam was to improve his exercise practices and his diet.

The news on Trump's health has put speculations to rest when he came under intense scrutiny on his mental fitness.
