Trump Gains Weight, Now Considered Obese

US President Donald Trump has put on weight since his last medical check-up, but remains in "very good health", his official doctor Sean Conley says.

President Donald Trump returns to the White House after receiving his annual physical exam at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Feb. 8, 2019.

"It is my determination that the president remains in very good health", Dr Conley said in a brief statement issued by the White House after examining the 72 year old.

Someone with a weight of 240 pounds and at Trump's 6-foot-3 height - a BMI or Body Mass Index of 30.4 - is considered obese and past year Trump had been advised to change his diet and get more exercise in order to lose a few pounds.

And he's also remarkably regained an inch of height at 6-foot-3, compared to the 6-foot-2 that was reported by Dr. Ronny Jackson previous year.

The findings pushed Trump into the obese range under a widely used government body mass index that aims to measure body fat based on height and weight.

Doctors last year recommended Trump exercise more, change his diet, and set a goal of losing 10 to 15 pounds within a year.

Aides say he now eats more fish than he used to but still enjoys steaks, well done with ketchup on the side, and fried potatoes prepared by the chefs at the White House and at the Trump International Hotel in Washington.

Conley said Trump's level of "bad" LDL cholesterol was 122, which is considered "near optimal/above optimal" by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.

The president's total cholesterol was measured at 196, with "an HDL of 58 and an LDL of 122" - all lower than previous year.

Trump's dose of a cholesterol drug called rosuvastatin, which is sold under the brand name Crestor, was increased to the maximum 40 milligrams per day, Conley said.
