Jackson has already increased the dosage of the Trump's cholesterol-lowering medication and recommended a low-carbohydrate and low-fat diet, along with an exercise regimen.

"The president is very sharp and he's very articulate when he speaks to me", Dr. Jackson said.
He said Trump now "doesn't have a dedicated, defined exercise program", but added the president's diet has improved since he moved into the White House. He speculated that Trump requested the exam in an attempt to beat back the narrative of the past few weeks that he is mentally unfit for office.

"It's called genetics", said Jackson.
Trump is well known for questioning whether exercise is beneficial and doesn't appear to get any beyond golfing with a cart. Last week a group of mental health professionals sent an urgent public letter to the president's doctor requesting he test Trump's cognitive abilities.
Since the controversy erupted, Trump has not explicitly denied referring to African countries and Haiti as "shitholes", but has said, without offering details, that he did not use the language attributed to him. "What can I tell you?"
That helped spark a flurry of activity on Twitter, where people debated whether the president officially had heart disease, based on the lab results released by Jackson and his comments to reporters.
Jackson, after spending four hours with Trump on Friday and evaluating his test scores, said of Trump: "absolutely he is fit for duty".
