Donald Trump's campaign has released the latest letter from the candidate's personal doctor which states that the GOP nominee "is in excellent physical health."
The campaign described the information as medical records, but it only consisted of a one-page letter from Dr. Harold Bornstein and a letter from Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City which shows that Bornstein had been reappointed to its staff and has clinical privileges at the hospital.
The cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels listed in the letter were obtained during a physical exam that Trump had on Friday Sept. 9.
The letter notes that his last colonoscopy was in 2013 and was normal, as were an EKG and chest X-ray done in April of this year.
The medications which Trump is listed as taking are a lipid-lowering agent and a low dose of aspirin.
These letters are the same ones that Trump shared during a taping of "The Dr. Oz Show" which will air this afternoon.
The latest preview clip shows the Republican presidential candidate telling Dr. Mehmet Oz that he would like to "lose a little weight."
Trump shared the results of a recent physical exam during a taping of the talk show, with Oz reading from a summary of exam results that Trump is 6-foot, 3-inches tall and weighs 236 pounds.
"I think if I had one thing, I'd like to lose weight. It's tough because of the way I live, but the one thing I would like to do is be able to drop 15, 20 pounds. It would be good," Trump said in one of the clips that was released early.
Trump has been pictured several times eating fast food on the campaign trail.
The show was taped Wednesday and will air in full this afternoon.
