Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D.-Minn., released a medical report Monday that proclaims her to be in "very good health" as she pursues the Democratic nomination for president against candidates in their 70s who have faced questions about their own health.

"Sen. Amy J. Klobuchar is in very good health," wrote Jennifer McKeand of Women’s Health Consultants in Minneapolis, according to The Hill. "She does not have any health conditions that would impair her ability to perform the duties of the presidency."

McKeand also wrote that Klobuchar's blood pressure was "excellent."

Klobuchar's report also showed a mild high concentration of lipids and a history of mitral valve prolapse, and a Mayo Clinic cardiologist suggested an echocardiogram in three to five years.

She had hip replacement and revision for hip dysplasia in 2006.

Her risk of cardiac disease, however, is only 1%, so she does not currently need heart medication. She is 59.

Other tests performed that came back with healthy results were for diabetes, thyroid disease, anemia, and colon, and cervical cancer.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., 78, had a heart attack in October, but has said he will release no further medical records than the three letters from his doctors in December that said he was healthy.

Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, 78, has released a one-page letter from his doctor declaring him to be in "great physical shape" and former Vice President Joe Biden, 77, released a three-page letter proclaiming him a "healthy, vigorous 77-year-old male."
