The White House doctor said Thursday that President Trump “remains in very good health overall,” although his physical exam showed his weight is up from last year and he is taking a higher dosage of cholesterol medication.
The president’s height was listed at 6 feet, 3 inches and his weight was 243 pounds, up from 239 pounds in Jan. 2018. Trump’s body mass index, a measure of body weight based on height, is 30.4, putting him in the obese category. Trump’s total cholesterol was 196 mg/dL, down from 223 last year. But his daily dosage of the drug rosuvastatin was increased to 40 milligrams daily.
