      Since this is basically a vitamin deficiency, I find it hard to believe that he's suffering from it now, and not when he was a public drunkard.  He's supposedly not drinking now.  And even if he is drinking again, he's got the best medical care in the world, as president.  They wouldn't let him suffer from a vitamin deficiency.

      Though he's ducked his "official" physical, a medical team travels with him everywhere he goes.  This is standard with any president; they don't go anywhere without a five-person medical team, including at least one doctor, and a bunch of medical equipment.
