Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Thursday released the results from his recent physical.

Trump’s campaign said the examination, with his longtime doctor Harold N. Bornstein, took place Sept. 9. In a press release, the campaign said: “We are pleased to disclose all of the test results which show that Mr. Trump is in excellent health, and has the stamina to endure — uninterrupted — the rigors of a punishing and unprecedented presidential campaign and, more importantly, the singularly demanding job of President of the United States.”

Here are the highlights from the document released by Bornstein:

  • Trump has been hospitalized only once in his life — when he was 11 years old for an appendectomy.
  • Trump is 6 foot 3 and weighs 236 pounds.
  • In terms of lab results: Trump’s cholesterol is 169, HDL cholesterol is 63, LDL cholesterol is 94, triglycerides is 61, PSA is 0.15, blood pressure is 116/70, blood sugar is 99 and C Reactive Protein UQ is 0.7.
  • His liver function and thyroid function tests are “all within the normal range.”
  • Trump has an annual physical exam every spring.
  • He had a a colonoscopy in July 2013, which was “normal and revealed no polyps.”
  • His cardiac evaluation came back with “normal” results and Trump’s family does not have a history of “premature cardiac or neoplastic disease.”
  • Trump takes rosuvastatin — a “lipid lowering agent” for cholesterol — and aspirin.
  • Trump does not smoke or drink.
  • Trump’s parents lived to their 80s and 90s.

Trump is set to discuss his health in more detail on the Dr. Oz Show on Thursday. Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee, on Wednesday released a new letter from her doctor in an attempt to allay concerns after her weekend medical scare.
