This information was included in Biden's annual physical examination report. The report revealed that he had a root canal last year and is currently undergoing treatment for sleep apnea, but overall, his health remains good, Al-Mamlaka TV reported.

O'Connor noted that 81-year-old Biden still experiences a stiff gait, which has not worsened since last year. Additionally, Biden suffers from peripheral neuropathy in both feet, gastroesophageal reflux, allergies, and inflammatory joint issues, all of which are managed with medications.

"The President feels well, and this year's medical examination did not reveal any new concerns… He remains in a health condition that allows him to fully perform his duties and responsibilities without any exceptions or limitations," O'Connor wrote in his report.

Interest in Biden's health has intensified this year due to his candidacy for a second term, making him the oldest president in US history.
