As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Doctor’s Letter: Trump is Overweight but Otherwise Healthy

Donald Trump released a letter from his doctor giving essentially the same kind of details Hillary Clinton’s doc provided, the basic results of a physical.

Like Clinton, he has not released a full medical history.

And not surprisingly, his doctor says he’s doing great. According to Politico:

Trump takes a cholesterol-lowering drug (rosuvastatin) and a low-dose aspirin in addition to reiterating that his only hospitalization was for an appendectomy at the age of 11. Trump is 6-foot-3, weighing 236 pounds, placing him in the upper bound of what is considered “overweight” by the National Institutes of Health Body Mass Index calculator.

Bornstein wrote that Trump’s test showed a cholesterol level of 169, HDL cholesterol 63, LDL cholesterol 94, triglycerides 61, PSA 0.15, blood pressure 116/70, blood sugar 99 and C Reactive Protein UQ 0.7.

Bornstein reported Trump’s liver and thyroid function tests as “all within the normal range,” with an annual physical exam taking place every spring. Trump’s last colonoscopy was on July 10, 2013, according to the note, and it was normal and “revealed no polyps.” His calcium score was 98 in 2013. An EKG and chest X-ray conducted on April 14 of this year showed “normal” results, Bernstein added, going on to note that Trump received a transthroacic echocardiogram on Dec. 16, 2014 that “was reported within the range of normal.”

Trump’s testosterone level is 441.6, according to the report, which also states that his family has no history of premature cardiac or neoplastic disease, nor does the candidate use tobacco or alcohol.

And of course, the letter does not go into treatments he has received for recent major illnesses and sudden collapses, since he hasn’t had any, at least not that we’ve seen in the last year and a half.

  1. Overweight – good grief.
    My 16 yr old grandson is 6’4, weighs 310lbs and is a star football player at his high school.
    And, he’s not the biggest kid there, either.

    The weight/ratio charts are all geared to what someone decided was “normal”.
    No one is “normal”.

  2. OT Streisand and BonJovi are in charge of throwing a birthday party for Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation at the Rainbow Room in New York. Donors are being asked to donate 250,000 or 100,000 or 50,000 dollars. Totally disgusting.

    • Bill and Hillary Clinton represent the very worst in the entire history of American political culture–greedy, liars, deceptive, self-serving, completely untrustworthy. To celebrate Bill, Hillary and the Clinton Foundation– the vile manifestation of all the Clintons represent– is reprehensible.

  3. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were both in Cleveland for a rally a few weeks ago.

    One candidate traveled with EMS workers wearing bullet-proof vests riding in an ambulance with the lights flashing.
    A hospital gurney bed was rolled out and situated directly at the entrance of the rally staging area.
    The candidate remained in the staging tent for over an hour with the ambulance just steps away.

    This procedure is only used for sitting Presidents, not presidential candidates.

    • That’s some pneumonia – lingering for weeks now!

      I remember years ago when Soviet leader Yuri Andropov disappeared from public view, and they said he had a “cold.” When he eventually died, Johnny Carson had a a great line, “They finally figured out what was wrong with Yuri Andropov…he’s dead!”

  4. A reputable doctor told me that today’s BMI numbers are based on the measurements of 18 year old soldiers in World War 2.

    He dismisses them today.
