The long-time physician for President Trump said he has been able to maintain his blonde locks by taking a prostate-related drug to boost his hair growth.

Dr. Harold N. Bornstein, who has been Trump’s medical provider since 1980, said under his supervision, Trump has taken a low dose of finasteride, which can lower PSA levels. The drug is marketed as Propecia and meant as a treatment for male-pattern baldness.

Bornstein also said the commander-in-chief also takes antibiotics for rosacea and a statin to control his inflated blood cholesterol and lipid levels.

Bornstein also has Trump on a daily baby aspirin regimen to lower his risk of a heart attack, according to a report in the New York times published Wednesday evening.

Trump has never shared how, as the oldest person to be elected to the White House, at 70 years old, he has maintained his hair. Fallout is common among middle-aged and senior-aged men.

It’s unknown whether Trump continues to take the drug since Bornstein wouldn’t say whether he still serves as Trump’s physician. The New York City-based doctor has not been formally chosen to serve as the White House physician.

Bornstein said the White House has not requested Trump’s medical records since the billionaire businessman moved to Washington last month.

During Trump’s presidential campaign, Bornstein released two letters stating Trump was in good health.

“If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency,” Dr. Bornstein wrote.

In September 2016, Bornstein issued another statement touting the then-GOP presidential nominee’s state of health as “excellent.”

“[Trump] has the stamina to endure — uninterrupted — the rigors of a punishing and unprecedented presidential campaign and, more importantly, the singularly demanding job of President of the United States,” according to a campaign statement with Bornstein’s report.

Last August, the public learned Bornstein had been sued for malpractice on three separate occasions. Bornstein was alleged having overmedicated patients and caused their deaths.
