Trump’s doctor opened hidden president's secret
PresidentT Donald Trump takes a prostate drug marketed to promote hair growth, the 70-year-old billionaire’s long-time physician revealed in a series of wide-ranging interviews published by The New York Times
Dr. Harold Bornstein listed two other medications that Mr Trump takes, including an antibiotic to control rosacea, a common skin condition, and a statin for elevated blood cholesterol and lipids.
“He has all his hair,” Bornstein, whose practice is on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, told the Times, adding that he, too, takes the drug to maintain his own shoulder-length locks.This may be the greatest 'dad joke' of all time
According to Bornstein, the president also takes baby aspirin daily to reduce the risk of a heart attack and his medical care is “exactly up to date”, the Times reported. Mr Trump has been a patient of Bornstein’s since 1980, according to the Times, and was under the care of Bornstein’s father before then.
Harold Bornstein’s first foray into the national spotlight came after he released four paragraphs scant on medical information pertaining to the then-presidential hopeful’s health, declaring simply that Mr Trump would be “the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency”.
While the White House declined to comment on 69-year-old Bornstein’s most recent remarks, the revelation that Mr Trump takes Finasteride, which is marketed as Propecia to treat male-pattern baldness, quells some rumours about potential prostate issues.The real price of divorce
Months before the election, Bornstein released a second report on Mr Trump’s health, a more comprehensive account which revealed very low levels of prostate specific antigen (PSA). Speculation mounted that the president’s low PSA levels indicated he had been treated for an enlarged prostate or prostate-related issues, but a drug like Finasteride would influence PSA measurements. Bornstein confirmed to the Times that Mr Trump’s PSA level is low because of Propecia.
Bornstein said he has had no contact with Mr Trump since he became president, though he was invited and attended the inauguration. He said the White House has not asked for copies of Mr Trump’s medical records, and officials would not tell the Times whether Bornstein was still the president’s physician.
