Trump has heart disease: CNN's doctor Sanjay Gupta

Trump is 6-foot-3 and 239 pounds - one pound shy of obesity, according to the body mass index.

He said despite the president's love of fast food and lack of exercise he was in good health, and that he has "incredible genes".

President Donald Trump asked that a cognitive test be included as part of his first physical exam.

"All clinical data indicates that the president is now very healthy and that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency", Rear Admiral Dr. Ronny Jackson, the official Physician to the President, said during the news briefing.

An example of the sort of test Trump faced is available online.

On Tuesday, Trump and Nasreddine's worlds converged in the strangest of ways when the White House's top doctor announced that the president had achieved a ideal score of 30 points on the MoCA test as part of his first formal medical exam.

The physician, who was appointed to the White House post by President Barack Obama and retained by Trump, said that Trump's diet had changed since he took office.

Others have compared famous sportsmen of the same weight and height as Mr Trump to lay doubt on the results of the physical exam.

Where Dr. Harold Bornstein was shaggy and sensational, Jackson was all business, reading off test results in his blue and gold dress uniform.

Mr Trump was 70 when he took office on January 20, 2017, making him the oldest person ever elected to the presidency.

"He continues to enjoy the significant long-term cardiac and overall health benefits that come from a lifetime of abstinence from tobacco and alcohol", Jackson wrote. He was examined by military doctors at the Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, in tests that were said to have gone "exceptionally well".

A reporter at the press conference asked if there was a reason the President "appeared to slur his words" while giving a recent address.

That could be due to two factors, Jackson said.

Christopher Cannon, MD, a cardiologist at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, said a standard risk calculator shows Trump with a 16.7% risk of a heart attack or other atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease event in the next 10 years.

Trump took office at age 70, making him the oldest incoming US president.

It was during his time in Iraq that Jackson was chosen as a White House physician and returned to the USA in 2006.

President Trump does take medication in a bid to lower his higher-than-recommended cholesterol level of 233, however, as well as daily anti-baldness pills.

"It's called genetics. I don't know", Jackson said.

Speaking to news media Tuesday, Nasreddine stressed that while Trump's ideal score was generally good news with regard to the president's memory, it didn't offer anything near a complete psychological profile.

The White House made Dr. Jackson available to answers reporters' questions about Mr. Trump's health for an hour, an unprecedented display of access and exposure of patient privacy for a matter that previous White Houses have dispensed with in a brief statement.
