Men’s Health Month is an annual health campaign dedicated to the awareness of men’s health.
The goal of this month is to encourage men to take control over their own health and adopt healthy lifestyles. This includes being more proactive about their physical health and mental well-being, as well as placing focus on prevention, such as the care offered by Hoag Concierge Medicine.
Importance of Men’s Health
Men’s health is an important topic that needs to be discussed, as it is one that is unfortunately often overlooked. This is problematic, as men have a greater risk of certain conditions and diseases.
Men are less likely to:
- Talk about their health
- Go to the doctor
- Have a regular physician
Men are more likely to:
- Have high blood pressure and/or cholesterol
- Develop diabetes and osteoporosis
- Die from heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and suicide
Men’s Health and Aging
The risk of prostate cancer increases with age, and men who have prostate cancer are more likely to die from it than women who have breast cancer.
Men’s Health Month is a time to focus on the health and wellness of all men, but it can also be a time to focus on your own health. Take this opportunity to learn more about your body, diet, and exercise routines.
It is an excellent time to make small changes that can have a big impact on you and those around you, and Hoag Concierge Medicine is here to help.
Reducing Men’s Health Risks
There are several ways you can reduce the health risks discussed. A good general rule of thumb to preserve and protect your health is to eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, do not drink or smoke too much alcohol, and maintain a healthy weight.
