( – President Biden has been declared “fit for duty” and free of any new health issues following a comprehensive physical examination conducted on Wednesday. Amid ongoing discussions about his age as he pursues reelection, this assessment aims to address voter concerns.

Dr. Kevin O’Connor, in a memo to the press, confirmed that President Biden remains in good health, with the examination uncovering no new health concerns. Dr. O’Connor highlighted Biden’s robust state, describing him as a “healthy, active, robust 81-year-old male” who is fully capable of fulfilling his presidential duties without any limitations.

The president’s health status remains largely unchanged since his last examination in February 2023, with only a slight increase in discomfort in his left hip, attributed to mild arthritic changes, being noted. An extensive neurological evaluation also indicated no signs of major disorders such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, or Parkinson’s disease, showcasing Biden’s excellent motor skills.

No cognitive tests were performed during this examination, as deemed unnecessary by doctors. White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre highlighted Biden’s daily engagement with complex topics as evidence of his cognitive capabilities.

This health report contrasts with descriptions in a report by Special Counsel Robert Hur on Biden’s handling of classified documents, which painted him as an elderly individual facing memory challenges. Dr. O’Connor also noted Biden’s arthritis has not worsened and mentioned the president’s use of a CPAP machine to enhance his sleep quality, addressing symptoms of sleep apnea present since 2008.

Biden’s overall health, including his management of acid reflux, seasonal allergies, spinal arthritis, and atrial fibrillation, was described as stable and well-managed. The president, who exercises regularly, does not use tobacco, abstains from alcohol, and maintains a healthy weight, has been married happily for 46 years.

As President Biden, at 81, aims for reelection, the White House is likely to use these results to mitigate concerns regarding his age and capability for serving another term. This comes in the context of polling indicating voter concerns about his age, despite former President Trump, at 77, being a potential opponent. Trump has critiqued Biden’s competency rather than his age, while Biden himself emphasizes the age of ideas over the numerical age, humorously noting Trump’s occasional memory lapses.

This health assessment is part of a broader narrative surrounding the fitness and readiness of presidential candidates, especially as they navigate the challenges and scrutiny of public life and leadership.
