After undergoing his annual physical last week, President Trump’s physician said Trump “remains in very good health overall” despite packing on a few pounds over the past 12 months.

In the physician’s memo, Trump’s physical noted he was up from 239 pounds in early 2018 to 243 pounds. According to Reuters that weight gain now places the president into the obese category on the body mass index, which measures body fat based on height and weight.

President Trump’s physician, Sean Conley, noted in the memo he had increased the amount of rosuvastatin – a drug which helps lower bad cholesterol while raising good cholesterol – the president takes.
