Trump’s medical examination rules out hydroxychloroquine side effects, but warns of overweight
U.S. President Donald Trump has not suffered any immediate side effects from the consumption of hydroxychloroquine, a drug commonly used against malaria and which the U.S. president used as a preventive measure against the coronavirus, despite the lack of evidence, according to the latest medical tests.
The White House on Wednesday released the results of these tests, carried out between November 2019 and April 2020, and which show that the president “continues to be healthy,” according to the report signed by the personal physician, Sean Conley, and collected by local media. The levels of blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure are within the ranges considered normal, although Trump has gained half a kilo and is now around 110.5. At 6’2″, he has a body mass index of 30.49 , above the threshold of 30 that experts set for clinical obesity.
The president’s obesity was used as an argument by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to warn him recently of the risks of hydroxychloroquine consumption. However, the White House tenant completed his two weeks of medication “safely and without side effects,” in the words of his doctor.
