Back in December, Dr. Harold N. Bornstein — a gastroenterologist from Lenox Hill Hospital in New York and Donald Trump’s personal physician — stated that the GOP nominee would "be the healthiest" president ever, according to NPR.

Following Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s recent bout with pneumonia, 70-year-old Trump has released a one-page health summary from Dr. Bornstein. The record became public on Thursday via the Dr. Oz Show and concluded that the presidential candidate was "in excellent physical health." It listed his weight, cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar and other figures.

So, how healthy is Mr. Trump? We’ve compared his newly-released records to the average American's’ health statistics.

Blood pressure

Trump’s current blood pressure is 116/70, the physician reported. This is considered normal, because a healthy blood pressure is less than 120/80, according to the American Heart Association.


Standing at a height of 6'3," Trump weighs 236 pounds. This technically puts him at the high end of the healthy spectrum. The National Institutes of Health says that a man of Trump's height should weigh roughly between 152 and 240 pounds.

"I think I could lose a little weight," Trump told Dr. Oz when the report was publicized. The GOP nominee added that he would like to lose 15 to 20 pounds.


Lab results in the letter show that Trump has normal levels of cholesterol. Dr. Bornstein revealed that the presidential candidate is currently taking a cholesterol drug known by the brand name Crestor, and he also takes a low-dose aspirin to regulate it.

Blood sugar

Trump also has normal levels of blood sugar, the lab results showed.
