Men’s Health Matters
When it comes to men’s health, concerns can often take a backseat. From being too busy to battling the need to be macho, men are more likely to dodge annual doctor visits. However, as we get older, skipping annual screenings can cause grave consequences.
In fact, heart disease is the leading cause of death for men in the United States. Did you know that many of the risk factors are detectable, treatable, and even preventable? 70% is controllable through lifestyle!
During our time together at my next event, Men's Health 101, on Thursday, November 14th at 7:00 pm CST at House of Gilead, I will discuss common men’s health concerns as well as necessary lifestyle changes to prevent disease.
The topic of men’s health is important and shouldn't be underestimated. With tools to prevent disease, there’s no excuse for not getting the care one needs. Men's Health 101 will make your healthcare routine much clearer!
Annual Screenings and Tests
Annual exams and screenings are vital to health no matter your age or state of health. In fact, visiting your primary care provider for regular preventive care is one of the best ways to identify and treat health issues before they get worse.
When it comes to health concerns, women are more likely to seek help. Women are also more likely to keep up with annual visits to the doctor. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, men are 24% less likely to visit a doctor for annual check ups!
This may account for the fact that men have a shorter life expectancy than women. (Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death for men, accounting for 1 out of every 4 deaths? Half of all men who die of coronary heart disease experienced no symptoms, which is why annual screenings are so crucial.
