After ongoing back-and-forth about the status of Donald Trump’s health records and if he would release them to the public, the Republican presidential candidate has released some detail on the state of his health.
The information released to the press by the campaign Thursday morning is not a comprehensive look of his health but the results of a physical he received last week. It appears to be the same information Trump let television show host Dr. Mehmet Oz, who first reviewed the health report, see.
The release comes after his opponent, Hillary Clinton, released details of her health after she was diagnosed with a "mild case" of pneumonia.
The letter written by Dr. Harold Bornstein, the doctor who wrote several months ago in a four-paragraph letter, which he wrote in five minutes, that Trump would be the “healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency,” wrote that Trump is “in excellent physical health.
The letter states:
HDL cholesterol: 63
LDL cholesterol: 94
Blood Pressure: 116/70
Colonoscopy: Performed July 10, 2013 and “revealed no polyps.”
“His liver function and thyroid function testes are all within normal range.”
He had a transthoracic echocardiogram on December 16, 2014 and “within the range of normal.”
Trump takes a “lipid lowering agent (rosuvastatin) for his cholesterol and a “low dose of aspirin.”
“Mr. Trump’s parents, Mary and Fred, lived into their 80s and 90s,” Borenstein wrote.
