Trump campaign releases results from physical: Doc says he's in "excellent physical condition," but a little overweight

Donald Trump's campaign on Thursday morning released the results of the 70-year-old GOP presidential nominee's most recent physical.

In a signed letter, Trump's personal physician for more than three decades, Dr. Harold Bornstein, confirmed, "He is 6'3" tall and weighs 236 pounds." Earlier details of Trump's height and weight — as an indication of his body mass index — conflicted among sources reporting on a live taping of "The Dr. Oz Show" on Wednesday (which will air Thursday afternoon).


Nonetheless, at 6 foot 3 and 236 pounds, Trump is, by definition, overweight.

According to the laboratory results, which Dr. Bornstein listed in his letter, Trump's cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, prostate specific antigen, blood pressure, and blood sugar all tested within the "normal range." (To regulate his cholesterol and blood pressure, Trump "takes a lipid lowering agent (rosuvastatin)" in addition to a low-dose daily aspirin regimen.)

All told, Bornstein said the Trump "is in excellent physical condition."
