President Trump has common form of heart disease

Like most men of his age, President Donald Trump has a common form of heart disease, relatively easy to address if he increases the dose of his cholesterol-lowering medication and makes necessary lifestyle changes. Without those changes, the President has a moderate risk of having a heart attack in the next three to five years, according to the Mayo Clinic.

His score is 133, and anything over 100 indicates plaque is present and that the patient has heart disease. According to Trump’s official medical records, in 2009 his coronary calcium score was 34. In 2013, it was 98.

Trump, 71, is not too different than most Americans his age. After the age of 40, most men in the United States have some evidence of heart disease, and the President’s score places him squarely in the mid-risk range for a man of his age. Because the President doesn’t smoke or drink and “appears to have good genes,” according to Jackson, he has been able to avoid the classic symptoms of heart disease.
“His score is 133 and he is 71 years of age, which puts him in the 46 percentile,” said cardiologist Dr. Rachel Bond of Lenox Hill Hospital in New York. “What does this indicate? Yes, he certainly has coronary artery disease because calcium is present. But this is also common for someone his gender, race and age.
“When I compare him to other males who are 71 and white, only 46% of others have a better score than him.”
