Washington: US President Donald Trump had no chest pain nor was he evaluated or treated for any urgent or acute issues, a presidential physician has said, two days after he went for an unscheduled physical check up at a military hospital that has given rise to speculation about his health.

Trump, 73, went for an unscheduled physical checkup at a Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre that has given rise to speculation about his health.

“The President has not had any chest pain, nor was he evaluated or treated for any urgent or acute issues.

Specifically, he did not undergo any specialised cardiac or neurologic evaluations,” the President’s Physician Dr Sean P. Conley said in a memorandum issued by on Monday. “A full summary of his labs and exam will be incorporated into next year's report, but the President has consented to me sharing that his total cholesterol is now 165 (mg/dL), with an HDL of 70, an LDL of 84 and a non-HDL of 95, he said.

Conley said primary preventative medical care is something that occurs continuously throughout the year and it is not just a single annual event.

“As such I will continue to monitor the President’s health, planning on a more comprehensive examination after the New Year,” he said.
