Donald Trump reportedly shared the results of his physical during a recent television appearance, despite previous reports.

Earlier this morning, his campaign aides said that he would not be releasing medical records during the taping of an appearance with Dr. Mehmet Oz on "The Dr. Oz Show" today.

After the taping, however, a press release from the show stated that the Republican presidential nominee did in fact share some personal medical information.

"Mr. Trump shared with Dr. Oz the results of his physical examination performed last week by Dr. Harold Bornstein, M.D. of Lennox Hill Hospital, whom has been Mr. Trump’s personal physician for many years," according to the statement.

Bornstein is the doctor who released an exclamatory note about Trump's health earlier in the campaign. He was not believed to be present at the taping of the show. But Ivanka Trump was on hand "to speak further about the childcare and maternity leave initiative that the Trump campaign announced Tuesday night," the statement said. "Additionally, as all physicians do when seeing a patient for the first time, Dr. Oz took Mr. Trump through a full review of systems."

It remains unclear if Oz tested Trump himself or simply read the results from the physical given by Bornstein.

Prior to the taping, there had been speculation about whether or not Trump would share his medical history with Oz.

Without explicitly referring to his "Dr. Oz" appearance, Trump said he would release the results from his physical this week.

In subsequent interviews promoting the show, Oz reportedly spoke to Fox News anchors about his Trump interview, and on Tuesday during "Fox and Friends," host Brian Kilmeade said Oz told them that Trump's previously undisclosed records would be shared.

"I know this — that Donald Trump will turn over those records right to Dr. Oz, and he will analyze it, and it will be a surprise to Donald Trump what Dr. Oz is going to say," Kilmeade said, citing his earlier conversation with Oz.
