Joe Biden is celebrating his 79th birthday this Saturday. The day before, he had a health check-up.

US President Joe Biden, 79, is in good health. Show that the results his routine health check that the White House published on Friday (November 19). The examination took place on the same day at the Walter Reed Military Hospital.

Biden, who will celebrate his 79th birthday on November 20, is described as an “active, energetic, 78-year-old man” fit enough to “successfully carry out the duties of the presidency.” His healthy lifestyle certainly plays a major role in this: Doctor Kevin O’Connor noted in the results report that Biden did not smoke, drink alcohol and exercise at least five times a week.

Special job for Kamala Harris

The report also listed the mostly positive results of various tests, including a colonoscopy. Since the 79-year-old was under general anesthesia for the duration of the procedure, he temporarily passed authority over to Vice President Kamala Harris (57) during this time. However, a few complaints were noted with the oldest president in United States history.

Biden’s increased throat clearing and coughing at public appearances is not caused by a serious health problem, according to the report. The reflux disease with accompanying heartburn could be a cause. Biden also suffers from allergies and arthritis, his stiff gait is the result of a mild nerve ailment in his feet and a foot injury that he sustained a year ago.
