Trump to undergo second physical exam Friday

Dr. Sean Conley, physician to the President, announced that President Donald Trump is in "very good health" following his physical examination at the Walter Reed military hospital Friday.

U.S. President Donald Trump gives two thumbs up to the crowd during a campaign rally on the eve of the U.S. mid-term elections in Cleveland, Ohio., U.S., November 5, 2018.

President Trump has not followed his doctor's exercise and diet plan to the letter, the White House said before his annual medical check-up today.

Mr. Trump had his second annual physical at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Friday, after the now-infamous Dr. Ronny Jackson gave him a strict regimen to follow a year ago. There is little evidence to indicate he has lost a significant amount of weight. The Trump administration also submitted his name to increase his naval rank from rear admiral to two-star admiral.

Trump has admitted he has not hewn closely to his diet plan. Trump's hearing was not tested; Jackson said he ran out of time.

"The president received a diet and exercise plan past year after his annual physical, but the president admits he has not followed it religiously", Hogan Gidley, the principal deputy White House press secretary, told CNN on Thursday.

At last year's physical, Trump weighed 239 pounds (108 kg) at last year's physical.

The president rather infamously ordered burgers from McDonald's, Wendy's and Burger King, fries, pizza and some salads for the champion Clemson Tigers football team when the visited the White House last month.

Last year, the public learned details about Trump's height, weight, heart rate, blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Last year's exam lasted more than four hours.

Trump daily takes a 10 mg dose of the drug Crestor to lower cholesterol, 81 mg of aspirin for cardiac health, and 1 mg of the drug Propecia for prevention of male pattern hair loss.
