WASHINGTON, June 12 (UPI) -- Despite a slight uptick in his cholesterol and a penchant for nicotine gum, the president of the United States is in fine health according to his physicians.

"All clinical data indicates that the president is currently healthy and that he will remain so for the duration of his presidency," Dr. Ronny Jackson said.

Among President Obama's few mild trouble spots were his cholesterol levels, which rose 20 points from 193 in 2011 to 213. Additionally, Obama suffers from mild tenderness in his right foot and has recurrent right plantar fasciitis, a common runners' injury.

His medication regimen includes ibuprofen for the runners'-heel, malarone for travel to areas where malaria is commonplace and Vitamin D to treat a mild Vitamin deficiency. And, of course, the occasional stick of nicotine gum for the former smoker.

"[President Obama] "continues to focus on healthy lifestyle choices. He eats a healthy diet, exercises daily, remains tobacco free, and only drinks alcohol occasionally and in moderation."

This was Obama's third and likely last physical while in office.
