Elizabeth Warren is "in excellent health," according to a doctor's report released Friday by her 2020 presidential campaign.

The big picture: Warren, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are all over 70 years old. They promised on the debate stage in September to release their medical records before the primary's first votes are cast.

Details: A long list of blood tests, performed in January, show that the Massachusetts senator has no underlying diseases and a low risk of heart disease and stroke.

  • Warren's "only medical condition" for which she needs medication is an underactive thyroid gland, according to her longtime doctor.
  • The report also states that she has never smoked, misused drugs or had a problem with alcohol.

The bottom line: About 50% of Democrats told Pew Research Center that they want a president in their 50s.

  • Warren turned 70 in June.
  • President Trump is 73 and became the oldest first-term president when inaugurated.
