Men's Health Month

June is Men's Health Month is to heighten the public's awareness of the many preventable health problems that affect men and boys.

More than 40 percent of men between ages 18 and 50 don’t have a primary care physician

Why do men avoid seeing their health care provider?
  • Don’t have a doctor
  • No insurance
  • Nothing is wrong, you feel good
  • Lack of time
  • You don’t want to spend the money
  • Doctors don’t do anything
  • Don’t want to hear the truth
  • Uncomfortable being examined
  • You tough it out
  • Your significant other encouraging you to get a checkup

Men’s Health Issues
  • Low testosterone is it real or not?
  • Low T symptoms: decreased energy, mood, increase in body fat
  • There’s been an increase of pharmaceutical testosterone ads and you shouldn’t be on treatments for it without consulting with your physician to get the best care.
  • A secondary issue to this is erectile dysfunction, which is important to receive the right care.

Men’s Health Tips
  • Maintain a healthy heart with diet, exercise and sleep
  • De-stress
  • Schedule a check-up
