Trump, Not Especially Vigilant On Diet, Declared 'In Very Good Health'
President Donald Trump was declared "in very good health" by the White House physician on Friday after four hours of examinations in what amounted to a test of whether his doctor's order that he follow a healthier diet has paid dividends. Specific details on Trump's weight, cholesterol levels and blood pressure were not released in a statement from White House physician Sean Conley after Conley and 11 specialists put the 72-year-old president through a battery of medical tests.

Trump Is In ‘Very Good Health’ Following His Annual Physical, His Doctor Says
But Dr. Sean Conley, a Navy officer who is the president’s physician and the current director of the White House medical unit, released no details about what a team of 11 specialists had found in the course of a four-hour examination of Mr. Trump. Dr. Conley said that “reports and recommendations are being finalized,” but did not say if, when or in what form they would be publicly released. Last year, after Mr. Trump’s first full examination as president, the White House took the unusual step of having Dr. Ronny L. Jackson, then the president’s physician, deliver a lengthy report in the White House briefing room and then answer questions from reporters. Dr. Jackson was widely ridiculed for using excessive language in describing the president’s health. (Rogers and Altman, 2/8)
