Living and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can seem daunting and intimidating to most men, especially since they want to appear tough and strong to their friends and family.
But what if we told you that men die, on average, six years younger than their female counterparts? This statistic is shocking and sobering, but it does not have to remain constant in our reality. Considering most factors that contribute to the early death of a male are preventable, they can make choices that will allow them to live a longer and healthier life.
The first thing to note is that the word ‘health’ is not exclusive to a man’s physical well-being. Their mental and emotional state is a large factor in their overall well-being and health. With that being said, there are several ways men can be proactive about their physical, emotional and mental health. The first step to living a longer and healthier life is to go to the doctor on a regular cadence, for yearly exams and routine checkups. These doctors’ appointments can range from a simple physical to a screening for testicular or prostate cancer.
These appointments should serve as a haven for men to connect with their doctor regarding any concerns and questions about their health.
In addition to regular doctor visits, it is important for men to take the necessary precautions to live a healthier and prolonged life. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:
It is imperative to note that men can develop illnesses and medical conditions at the same rate as women. In fact, there are some illnesses, such as breast cancer, that even men are susceptible to. However, there are several medical conditions that men are more prone to. These illnesses are:
It is imperative that all men speak with their doctor regarding their risk for developing these illnesses and diseases, among others. The chances that a man will be more susceptible to developing these illnesses or diseases will be largely dependent on their lifestyle and family history. Please consult your medical professionals if you have any questions, comments or concerns regarding your medical history and your health.
