Donald Trump's Doctor: President in ‘Very Good Health’

President Trump’s health is a topic of conversation lately as his annual physical is coming up. More

It took place at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

Trump, who is 6-foot-3, weighed 239 pounds at his physical previous year and Dr. Ronny Jackson, who did the first examination, said Trump should aim to lose 10 to 15 pounds.

"Over the course of approximately four hours, I performed and supervised the evaluation with a panel of 11 different board-certified specialists", said Dr. Sean Conley in a memo for White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.

Jackson said he would work on getting Trump on a "dedicated, defined exercise program" and that "we can build on that pretty easily".

On Friday night, President Trump's physician said the President is in "very good health" and is expected to remain so. Conley said Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, meaning he did not have a colonoscopy. Things can happen that all the medical tests in the world could never see coming, and they're much more likely to happen when you are in your 70s.

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said before the exam that Trump, 72, hasn't "religiously" followed the diet and exercise guidance he received past year.

Dr. Jackson said then that Mr. Trump had a ideal score on a cognitive test and might live to be 200 years old if he had a more healthful diet. Jackson said a year ago he increased Trump's dose of a medicine to control cholesterol, AstraZeneca PLC's Crestor. Trump's hearing was not tested, The exam stretched past four hours. He makes no secret of preferring a diet of red meat, fast food and candies. Trump loves fast food and had ordered burgers, french fries and pizza when he invited the college football champion Clemson Tigers to the White House last month.

One of the big questions Friday was how well Trump heeded that advice.

Not for Trump the basketball sessions that Barack Obama sweated through in the White House, or the bike rides of George W Bush.

The 45th president's diet, reportedly involving legendary amounts of Coke and red meat, also seems to defy most doctors' orders.
