  • Trump’s blood pressure is considered normal, but his Body Mass Index is 30.4. A BMI over 30 is considered clinically obese.

The results of President Donald Trump’s second physical examination as commander-in-chief suggest he is in “very good health overall,” according to a report released Thursday.

Trump took the roughly four-hour medical exam at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, on February 8, where a group of 11 medical specialists screened him and administered vaccinations for shingles and pneumococcal diseases.

Not much has changed since Trump’s first examination last year. Standing at six-feet, three-inches tall, Trump weighs 243 pounds, had a blood pressure reading of 118/80 at the time of his physical, and a cholesterol reading of 196 mg/dL, which is considered “desirable” for adults, according to the National Institutes of Health.

Trump’s blood pressure is considered normal, but his Body Mass Index – the body fat measured by one’s height and weight – is 30.4. A BMI over 30 is considered clinically obese, according the Department of Health and Human Services.

Trump’s dosage of Rosuvastatin, a medication designed to lower bad cholesterol levels, was increased to 40mg per day.

Last year, the White House’s former physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, gave Trump a clean bill of health and threw cold water on the unsubstantiated rumours of Trump’s declining mental and physical health.

“The president is very healthy and will remain so for the duration of his presidency,” Jackson said during his 2018 press briefing.

Jackson gave no indication of any extreme health concern about Trump, but he did note that the president’s LDL cholesterol levels – known as “bad cholesterol” – were too high.
