Men, It’s Time to Prioritize Your Health

Men, It’s Time to Prioritize Your Health

Despite the importance of regular health check-ups, studies show that men are 50% less likely than women to seek medical care. This reluctance can have serious consequences. Here’s why you should make your annual check-up appointment today.


Early Detection Saves Lives

Avoidance can lead to missed opportunities for early intervention and an increased risk of serious health problems down the line. It’s not unusual for me to encounter male patients who haven’t seen a doctor in years and now have a heart issue that is unnecessarily advanced. 

Many health issues are preventable or easily treatable when detected early. Regular visits to the doctor can help identify potential problems before they become serious. Whether it’s monitoring blood pressure and cholesterol levels, or screening for certain cancers, catching these issues early can lead to simpler, more effective treatments.

Remember, 80% of heart disease need not exist - yet it’s the number one killer of men (and women).  Regular check ups can help you avoid becoming another statistic.


Overcoming the Fear of Bad News

One major reason men avoid the doctor is the fear of receiving bad news. While this is a natural concern, it’s important to remember that knowing about a health issue is the first step towards addressing it. By facing potential issues head-on, you’re taking control of your health and future. 

For example, no one wants to hear that they have high cholesterol and an abnormal coronary calcium scan  - and now they need to change their diet and go on statin medications.  But those two relatively simple interventions can assure you avoid a heart attack, stroke and/or bypass surgery down the line.  Your calcium score and LDL level become just numbers rather than a prelude to life altering events to come.

And never forget the power you have to help yourself live longer and better. Eating to build health rather than disease is always a good strategy - regardless of any diagnosis or treatment plan. 

Taking Action

This Men’s Health Month, take the opportunity to prioritize your health. Schedule your annual check-up and encourage your male friends and relatives to do the same. 

Taking care of your health is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your loved ones. 

Now is the perfect time to make a plan to break the cycle of avoidance. Your future self will thank you.
