President Obama is “fit for duty,” his doctor concludes in a medical report released Monday by the White House.
According to the report by Dr. Jeffrey C. Kuhlman, the president was found to have normal blood pressure and cholesterol levels. He also tested negative in colorectal and prostate screening exams while his vision is 20/20.
“The President is in excellent health and ‘fit for duty’. All clinical data indicate he will remain so for the duration of his Presidency. The President is current on all age-appropriate screening tests. He is ‘fit at fifty’ and ‘staying healthy at 5+’,” wrote Dr. Kuhlman, who is also a Navy captain.
Dr. Kuhlman recommends the president undergo another physical in December of 2012.
