U.S. President Donald Trump is apparently is in good working order health-wise, according to the White House doctor, and - despite some questioning his mental stability - the president's cognitive skills are flawless, the doctor says.
Jackson said he would increase Trump's daily dose of Crestor, a cholesterol-lowering drug, and bring in a nutritionist to work with White House chefs. Such questions have escalated in the wake of an unflattering new book that paints Trump as a man-child who has trouble processing information and recognizing old friends.
Jackson said that Donald Trump asked him to conduct a cognitive test on him, even though it was not required by law.
"The president is mentally very sharp, very intact".
Asked about Trump's comments challenging his honesty, Durbin told reporters Tuesday: "I stand by every word I said about what was said".
"He has incredible genes and that's the way God made him".
In December 2015, Mr Trump's own long-time doctor, Harold Bornstein, declared in a pre-election assessment that his client would be the "healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency".
The standard version of the test is "pretty good" but "not definitive" said Dr. Ronald Petersen, an Alzheimer's disease expert at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
Based on the blood profile and other health parameters, Jackson said he has recommended diet and exercise plan for the president for weight loss.
Mr Trump responded by saying Wolff's book was "full of lies", while Secretary of State Rex Tillerson dismissed suggestions the president's mental health was failing.
The president, like most Americans, would benefit from a "diet that is lower and fat and carbohydrates", along with more exercise, the doctor said. "All clinical data indicates the president is very healthy and would remain so for the duration of his presidency".
While Trump, at 190 centimeters (almost 6 feet 3 inches) tall and weighing 108 kilograms (239 pounds) is the third-heaviest president in US history (after William Howard Taft and Grover Cleveland), "the president's overall health is excellent", Dr. Ronny Jackson said. "He has the grip of a guy who would fail that test, if you know what I mean".
In fairness, those athletes have much more weight in sculpted muscle than Trump, whose body mass is distributed just a bit differently (also in fairness: this out-of-shape author is no one to talk). A BMI of 30 and over is considered obese. Jackson said he'd ruled out a list of possible causes, and that dry mouth caused by the over-the-counter decongestant Sudafed was likely to blame.
"It's not a diagnostic test, but it's pretty sensitive in picking up subtle changes in cognition", things involving memory, attention and language but not mental health issues, said Dr. Ranit Mishori, professor of family medicine at Georgetown University, who performs these types of routine physicals.
Trump did not undergo a psychiatric exam.
Nasreddine told the Canadian Press that he hopes Trump, having aced his cognitive test, will reconsider some of his hard line views on border security, refugees and attempts to restrict travel from Muslim-majority countries.
