Getting the screenings and checkups you need can help you live a longer and healthier life. It’s your responsibility to find a primary care physician with whom you feel comfortable discussing your needs. We recommend seeing us at the Men’s Vitality Center for all your men’s primary healthcare needs. Your friends and family will love you for taking the needed steps to better your health and lifestyle, and you’ll feel great about taking the first steps toward a healthier, happier life.
It’s imperative as a man that you receive regular health screenings from a men’s doctor for high blood pressure, high cholesterol and other serious conditions. Remember, you know your body better than anyone else, so when you notice changes, it’s important to speak with your men’s health professional as soon as possible.
- High Blood 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. However, 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 diabetes or high blood pressure, if you have a history of heart disease or blocked arteries, or if your family has a history of heart attacks. We offer managed care that can help you keep your cholesterol levels in check.
- Diabetes: You should get your blood sugar checked and be screened for diabetes if you have a diet high in salt and low in fruits and vegetables, if you are overweight, if you have a family history of diabetes, if you’re a regular smoker, or if you lead a sedentary lifestyle. Our men’s health experts can help you find an affordable and effective way to manage both Type I and Type II diabetes, so get in touch with us today for an appointment if you are struggling to keep your blood sugar regulated.
- Depression: As hard as it is to speak about, depression is a very real illness that affects thousands of men in the United States. It does not make you less of a man if you feel sad, down, or hopeless. If you’ve felt that way, or if you have lost interest in things that once gave you pleasure, then it’s time to talk with a health professional at Men’s Vitality Center. Your family and friends will see you as a stronger man for seeking help. Your symptoms may be due to low testosterone levels, and our testosterone replacement therapy program can help you get back to feeling like your old self. No matter what’s causing your depression, we’ll work to help you find a lasting solution.
- High Blood Pressure: Much like the oil pressure in your car, your blood pressure needs to be regulated. You know the 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 and eye problems, and heart failure are just a few of the complications that can arise if your blood pressure is consistently elevated. If you struggle to keep your blood pressure in check, then schedule an appointment with one of our physicians. We will develop an individualized care plan that helps you manage your blood pressure and lead a healthier life.
There are many other common men’s health problems that should be checked for as you get older. Please call our office to schedule an appointment, or simply drop in to see us at Men’s Vitality Center.
We’re here to help you age with masculinity and virility. Your friends and family will love the fact that you’re doing good things for your health!
We look forward to speaking with you.
