The White House has published a detailed report on Biden's health: what makes the US president sick

The White house опубликовал detailed report on the health of US President Joe Biden. The results of his annual medical examination confirmed that he was capable of performing his duties.


Biden, 81, underwent a physical on Feb. 28 at Walter Reed Medical Center. Doctors did not find any serious health problems in him. Biden, with a smile on his face, told reporters that doctors think he “looks young.”

“The President remains capable of performing all of his duties fully and without exception,” said his personal physician, Kevin O'Connor.

According to the survey, Biden weighs 80,7 kg with a height of 182,8 cm, his weight has not changed since last year. The doctor claims that the politician “works out at least five times a week,” but did not specify what kind of physical exercise the president does.

What was examined

Biden underwent examinations by specialists in optometry, dentistry, orthopedics, physical therapy, neurology, sleep medicine, cardiology, radiology and dermatology.

According to the medical report, Biden is currently undergoing treatment for several chronic diseases, but all of them are in a “stable stage.” In particular, the president is being treated for:

  • atrial fibrillation (irregular heart rhythm);
  • astroesophageal reflux (a condition in which stomach contents flow back into the esophagus causing heartburn and other unpleasant symptoms);
  • hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol);
  • seasonal allergies;
  • sensory peripheral neuropathy in both legs (the neuropathy makes his gait look stiff, but doctors say the situation has not gotten worse in recent years).

There is one new disease that the president developed last year - obstructive sleep apnea (closure of the upper airways during sleep due to decreased tone of their soft tissues). Doctors say the disease is at a stable stage. The president's apnea symptoms are relieved with the use of a CPAP machine (a device that attaches to the nose or nose and mouth during sleep and delivers extra air to increase pressure in the airways).

A detailed neurological examination of Biden revealed no signs of stroke or Parkinson's disease. The president also had a blood test done - all indicators had improved compared to the previous year.

Biden is the oldest president in United States history. Opinion polls show that ahead of the November election for the head of the White House, the age of the 46th president is causing concern among the American electorate. Additionally, many voters and even presidential administration officials are calling for Biden to take a cognitive test, but he refuses.

Biden has skin cancer

The President, among other things, underwent a complete routine dermatological examination. During a medical examination in 2023, Biden was diagnosed with a suspicious lump on his chest. A biopsy showed it was basal cell carcinoma, a non-aggressive form of skin cancer that often develops in older people with lots of sun exposure. All cancerous tissue was successfully removed.
