New doctor note describes Trump’s health as ‘excellent’
Washington, Sep 16 (IANS) The campaign of US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump released on Thursday a new brief note from Trump’s doctor, claiming that the candidate is “in excellent physical health”.
According to the five-paragraph note written by Trump’s doctor Harold Bornstein, Trump, 70, is six feet two inches (1.88 meters) tall and weighs 236 pounds (107 kg).
“Trump was hospitalized only once, as a child of 11 years old for an appendectomy,” said the note, adding that there is no family history of premature cardiac or neoplastic disease.
Trump has annual physical exam in the spring of every year, and his last colonoscopy, chest X-ray and cardiac evaluation were results. Trump also takes a low dose aspirin and a statin, rosuvastatin, used for lowering cholesterol.
It was the second time since last December that the Trump campaign had released public documentation about Trump’s health.
In his last note about Trump’s health in December, 2015, Bornstein declared “unequivocally” that Trump would be the “healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
It was later disclosed that Bornstein spent five minutes writing the note.
