Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is in “excellent physical health,” according to his longtime doctor Harold Bornstein, who on Thursday provided a range of details from the candidate’s laboratory reports for the first time.

Trump’s standard panel of laboratory tests showed normal cholesterol, blood pressure, liver and thyroid function, according to a one-page letter from Bornstein released by the campaign. Cardiac exams performed in 2014 and 2016 showed no sign of heart disease and he has no family history of the condition, the leading cause of death in the nation. Trump, 70, takes a cholesterol-lowering drug and aspirin daily to reduce his heart risk, and doesn’t smoke or drink, Bornstein said. He weighs 236 pounds and is 6 feet, 3 inches tall.
