Getting the healthcare screenings and checkups that you need as man can help you live a longer, healthier, more mobile, and ultimately happier life. It benefits you, and the ones you love, to find a primary care physician with whom you feel comfortable. We recommend seeing us at the Men’s Vitality Center for all of your primary medical care needs.
We can help you manage conditions such as…
High Cholesterol. If you are 35 years or older, it’s crucial that you have your cholesterol checked on a regular basis with a blood test. High cholesterol increases your risk of heart disease, stroke, and poor circulation. You should start having your cholesterol checked as early as age 20 if you smoke cigarettes, if you’re overweight or obese, if you have high diabetes or high blood pressure, if you have a history of heart disease or blocked arteries, or if your family has a history of high cholesterol or heart disease.
Diabetes. You should get your blood sugar checked, as well as be screened for diabetes if you have a diet high in salt and low in fruits and vegetables, or if you’re a regular smoker or have a sedentary lifestyle.
Depression. As hard as it is to speak about, depression is real. It does not make you less of a man if you feel sad, down, or hopeless. If you’ve felt that way, or have lost interest in things that once gave you pleasure, it’s time to talk to someone…TODAY.
High Blood Pressure. Much like the oil pressure in your car, your blood pressure needs to be regulated. You know that damage that can be caused to your engine if your oil pressure gets too high, but do you know the damage that can be done to your body if your blood pressure gets too high? Strokes, heart attacks, kidney failure, vision loss, and heart failure are just a few of the serious complications that can arise from uncontrolled hypertension.
The medical examples provided above are just a few of common men’s health problems that should be screened for, and managed by your primary care provider.
