Trump takes a licking for eating finger lickin
Trump takes a licking for eating finger lickin' chicken with a fork. CNN's Jeanne Moos reports. KFC Knife and Fork How do you eat your KFC chicken? Well we now know Donald Trump eats his with a knife and fork. At least there's a knife and fork in the photo the Donald tweeted of himself getting ready to chow down on his private plane with a bucket of KFC next to him and a piece on his plate. Will combine this with Jon Stewart's rant when Trump ate pizza with a knife and fork. And we'll toss in characters on Seinfeld eating Snickers bars with cutlery. We recreated the Trump KFC tableau using our own bucket of KFC. Also did MOS asking folks how they eat their KFC, hands or knife and fork. The hands have it hands down.

Trump's doctor says he wrote health note in 5 minutes

Story highlights

Trump's height and weight put his body-mass index in "overweight" range

However, "Mr. Trump is in excellent physical health," his doctor writes in a new letter

(CNN) —  

Americans have new information about Donald Trump’s health, one day after the nation received an updated overview of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s health on Wednesday.

Dr. Harold Bornstein, the Republican presidential candidate’s personal physician, released a letter Thursday revealing previously undisclosed details about Trump’s health. It was dated September 13.

The one-page letter debuted on “The Dr. Oz Show” on Wednesday morning when Trump pulled it out of his pocket and presented it to host Mehmet Oz.

“There’s a little bit more detail in Secretary Clinton’s letter. It goes back further in time,” said Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s chief medical correspondent and a practicing neurosurgeon.

“They’re both still just summary letters, though. These are not medical records, either one of them,” he said. “This may be it in terms of what we’ll see medically.”

From Trump’s weight status to his medications, here’s what we know about the 70-year-old presidential candidate’s health.

Trump’s key stats

At 6-foot-3 and 236 pounds, Trump has a body mass index of 29.5, which makes him overweight, according to the National Institutes of Health’s online BMI calculator. However, all of his test results were within normal range.

Bornstein’s letter indicates that Trump has a cholesterol level of 169 and blood pressure of 116/70. His blood sugar level is 99 mg/dL, and his triglycerides, which are a type of fat found in your blood, are 61 mg/dL, according to the letter (PDF).

Trump takes a statin drug, called rosuvastatin, which treats high cholesterol and triglyceride levels. He also takes a low-dose aspirin.

“Actually, I’ve experimented with three statins, and one seems for me to work the best, and it’s really brought my cholesterol down into a good range,” Trump said on “The Dr. Oz Show.”

Tests of Trump’s liver function and thyroid function revealed that they appeared to be within the “normal” range, Bornstein wrote. His latest electrocardiogram test and chest X-ray also appeared normal.

Additionally, Trump’s testosterone level was included in the letter: 441.6, “which is actually – is good,” Oz said during the show.

The letter revealed that Trump had a prostate-specific antigen level test, which is often used to monitor the prostate and screen for cancer. It resulted in a low score of 0.15. He also had a colonoscopy in 2013 and a transthoracic echocardiogram to examine his heart in 2014, both of which were normal. His calcium score was 98 in 2013.

A previous letter (PDF) released by Bornstein in December reported Trump’s blood pressure to be 110/65, and his PSA test score was the same, 0.15.

Trump’s family health history

“Mr. Trump was hospitalized only once, as a child of 11 years old for an appendectomy,” Bornstein wrote in the new letter, adding that Trump has a physical exam conducted each spring.

“There is no family history of premature cardiac or neoplastic disease,” he wrote. “Mr. Trump’s parents, Mary and Fred, lived into their late 80s and 90s. In summary, Mr. Trump is in excellent physical health.’”

In Bornstein’s previous letter, he described Trump’s laboratory test results as “astonishingly excellent” and concluded that Trump would be “the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”

When that letter was released last year, Gupta found such language to be surprising and “almost comically” lacking objectivity.

“Since the previous letter, Dr. Bornstein seems to have learned a little bit about presenting these letters,” Gupta said. “Now, he has ‘Mr. Trump is in excellent health,’ so he toned it down a little bit.”
