Former Vice President Joe Biden is healthy enough to undertake the duties of the U.S. presidency, his doctor said on Tuesday in a health report released by the Democrats campaign.
Biden, 77, is one of 15 Democrats seeking their partys nomination to run against Republican U.S. President Donald Trump next year in a battle in which the incumbent and the top three of his would-be opponents are all septuagenarians.
Biden, who suffered a brain aneurysm in 1988, has no symptoms of similar problems, and while his heart beats irregularly, he is completely asymptomatic, said Dr. Kevin OConnor, who teaches medicine and directs the Executive Medicine program for George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates.
The former vice president is taking anticoagulant medication for his heart and Crestor for high cholesterol, OConnor said. He has had no cancer other than localized, non-melanoma skin cancers, due to extended exposure to the sun as a younger man, nor any history of diabetes, thyroid disease, hypertension, angina or any neurologic disorder, the doctors report said.
Vice President Biden is a healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the presidency, to include those as Chief Executive, Head of State and Commander in Chief, OConnor wrote.
OConnor has been Bidens physician since 2009, when he was assigned as physician to the vice president, the report said.
