President Barack Obama is in top health, according to physical exam results released by White House Dr. Jeffrey C. Kuhlman.
“The president is in excellent health and fit for duty. All clinical data indicate he will remain so for the duration of his presidency.”
Obama, 50, is said to have improved his health, appearing to have quit smoking and pushing his cholesterol level to “ideal” levels.
According to the report, Obama’s total cholesterol level now stands at 193, compared to 209 in February 2010. His LDL (bad cholesterol) is now 110, down from 138 last year. The president at 6-foot-1 weighs 181.3 pounds and blood pressure at 107 over 71, within the normal range.
Obama plays golf and basketball to keep in shape, even sustaining lower lip laceration last year when he received an elbow. He is set to have his next physical exam in December 2012, after the November 6, 2012 presidential election.
It is good to know that your president is healthy and in excellent shape. As for the health of the economy, that is a different story.
