Joe Biden Has Heart Condition, Medical Records Reveal
2020 candidates personal physician releases report
The doctor for Former Vice president Joe Biden released a report detailing the 2020 candidate's health which revealed he is being treated for four different ailments despite concluding he is "fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency"
Biden's personal physician revealed the presidential candidate is being treated for A-fib, or an irregular heartbeat, acid reflux, high cholesterol, and seasonal allergies.
Despite Biden's irregular heartbeat, his doctor maintained he "remains completely asymptomatic" and has never required treatment for the disorder since being diagnosed in 2003.
"Vice President Biden is a healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency, to include those as Chief Executive, Head of State, and Commander in Chief," O'Connor wrote.
Biden has prescribed two separate medications for his heart condition.
For his acid reflux and allergies, he takes over-the-counter drugs.
His doctor, Kevin O'Connor, said Biden has to "clear his throat more often" due to acid reflux.
O'Connor, who is a professor at George Washington University, revealed the first glimpse into Biden's health since 2008 when he became vice president.
O'Connor noted that Biden currently "works out at least five days per week," and "does not use any tobacco products [and] does not drink alcohol at all."
But the report does not mention a declining cognitive ability or mental function.
In August this year, Biden's brain neurosurgeon insisted he had not suffered brain damage and was in good health, despite mounting concerns about his mental condition.
Dr. Neal Kassell said that Biden ‘is every bit as sharp as he was 31-years-ago,’ insisting he has not seen ‘any change’ in his patient over the last 20 years,' according to Politico.
Biden was previously treated for two brain aneurysms in 1988.
‘I can tell you with absolute certainty that he had no brain damage, either from the hemorrhage or from the operations that he had,’ Kassell said.
‘There was no damage whatsoever.’
Ever since Biden launched his White House bid in April, concerns over his mental acuity came into question.
Earlier this year, Biden said he was the vice president in 2018 during the Parkland school shooting.
Biden claimed he was VP and oversaw the attacks at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that took the lives of 17 people in Parkland, Florida, on February 14, 2018.
However, the Parkland shooting took place long after Biden had left office.
