President Trump to have physical exam January 12

White House officials have confirmed that President Donald Trump will undergo a routine physical exam on January 12.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced the date of the customary event on Thursday. Trump’s predecessors have similarly scheduled an evaluation every one or two years.

The White House spokesperson had previously stated that Trump would have the physical early in 2018 at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

The results of the exam are expected to be released to the public by military physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson some time after the physical.

At age 71, Trump is the oldest man to be elected President, and he has touted his physical wellness. His camp has released some, but not all, information about his health. When questions arose during his campaign, Trump’s gastroenterologist readied a four-paragraph letter saying he would be “the healthiest individual ever elected.”

Trump also made an appearance on “The Dr. Oz Show” to say how great he feels. The show included a review of his cholesterol levels and cancer screenings.

Several weeks ago, the President was again questioned about his health when he appeared to slur his words during an address.

The White House commented that his throat was dry.

This will be Trump’s first physical exam as President of the United States.

White House doctor’s medical readouts are typically rather bland, but filled with statistics and details. They provide the President’s height, weight, body mass index (which indicates whether an individual is average, overweight or obese), resting heart rate and blood pressure.
The exam may also include details about vision, thyroid, cardiac rhythms, gastrointestinal system, skin and neurological indicators like cerebellar function, motor functions and sensory systems.
Of late, the President’s diet has been the subject of scrutiny since campaign aide, Corey Lewandowski, told of his fast food regimen including multiple Big Macs daily,in addition to apple pies and milkshakes.
