Trump in ‘Very Good Health,’ Physician Says After Annual Exam

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

The president spent the day at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland, where he was examined by his physician and 11 other board certified specialists for a total of four hours.

Then-presidential physician Ronny Jackson previous year released results from Trump's medical exam showing he was borderline obese - weighing 239 pounds at 6 feet, 3 inches tall - but declared the president to be "fit for duty" and in "excellent health".

This year's exam will be overseen by Sean Conley, a Navy veteran and doctor of osteopathic medicine who's now president's physician.

"All my friends who work out all the time, they're going for knee replacements, hip replacements - they're a disaster", Trump told The New York Times in 2015.

US President Donald Trump, famous for his love of fast food, does not exercise or follow his diet plan, White House staffers said ahead of his annual physical exam.

Health officials are not providing information about this individual in order to protect their privacy. Five of the cases involved young children, some of whom received one round of the two-part vaccine.

One of the big questions Friday was how well Trump heeded that advice. It was unclear how numerous test results would eventually be made public. Conley said Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, meaning he did not have a colonoscopy. At the first physical of his presidency, which took place a year ago, he was found to weigh 239lb (108kg) and have a cholesterol level that is slightly higher than recommended.

Are there a few things he could do to make himself a little healthier with the diet and exercise? He also said of Trump: "He has incredibly good genes, and it's just the way God made him".

The physical, his second as President of the United States, was conducted at Walter Reed hospital on Friday afternoon.

In January, Trump hosted the strapping athletes of America's champion college football team, the Clemson Tigers, with a mountain of hamburgers and pizzas. Nor has he been known to enter the White House gym for a workout.

A White House spokesman didn't reply to an earlier request for plans on releasing the results of this year's exam.
