Men’s Health Q & A
What are some health issues relevant to men?
According to researchers, men have a higher likelihood of dying from a specific set of medical conditions. These include:
- Heart disease
- Chronic lower respiratory disease
- Unintentional injuries
While this may be a grim reality to face, there is hope in the fact that you can make meaningful lifestyle changes to reduce your risk of these conditions. If a serious health issue is detected, you’ll have multiple treatment options to choose from.
Ignoring your health is never the best approach and can have devastating consequences. The path to optimal health and wellness begins with scheduling routine annual men’s health exams.
Why see a doctor if I’m not sick?
Far too many men only come in to see a doctor when symptoms become unbearable. This approach fails to appreciate the power of preventive health care. Routine annual physicals are an opportunity to get the screenings you need to catch disease in the earliest possible stage, when treatments can be most effective.
Annual exams also allow the medical team to track your health data over time. Information about your heart and lung function, height and weight, and the results of blood work are all added to your personal medical record. That information can show changes over time and play a significant role in charting the course of your care.
What are some common sexual health issues men face?
A healthy sex life is an integral part of overall health and wellness. If you notice changes in your sex drive or performance, it’s time to come in for a thorough diagnostic exam.
As the years pass, you’ll experience changes related to declining hormone production. While those changes are a normal part of aging, that doesn’t mean you have to accept them as inevitable.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can deliver supplemental testosterone to restore optimal hormonal balance. That can improve numerous symptoms including:
- Low sex drive
- Erectile dysfunction
- Loss of muscle mass
- Weight gain
- Decreased bone mass
- Chronic fatigue
- Brain fog
- Mood swings
In some cases, hormone replacement therapy is not the best treatment path. If so, your practitioner will discuss alternative measures with you to help you make an informed decision about your care.
That process begins with a phone call or submit a request to schedule an appointment. Make today the day you place your health as a top priority.
