Men - Take Charge of your health!

June 14, 2017


As a man, husband, father, grandfather, son – you wear a lot of hats and you take care of your family. It’s time to take charge of your health and take care of YOU.


Let’s look at some statistics:

1.  On average, men live about 5 years less than their female counterparts

What can you do? Eat Healthy. Start by taking small steps like saying no to super-sizing and yes to a healthy breakfast. Eat many different types of foods to get all the vitamins and minerals you need. Add at least one fruit and vegetable to every meal.


2. Men have a higher death rate for most of the leading causes of death including; cancer, heart disease, diabetes and suicide

What can you do? Get Moving. Play with your kids or grandkids. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Do yard work. Play a sport. Keep comfortable walking shoes handy at work and in the car. Most importantly, choose activities that you enjoy to stay motivated.


3. 1 in 2 men will develop cancer in their lifetime

What can you do? Make Prevention a Priority. Many health conditions can be prevented or detected early with regular checkups from your healthcare provider. Screenings may include; blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose, prostate health & more. Additionally, in a study done by the American Academy of Family Physicians, more than half of all men surveyed have not seen their primary care physician for a physical exam within the past year. Don’t become another statistic. Make your appointment today.


Regardless of your age, you should make a point to know your family’s medical history to understand what you could be at risk for developing, as well as have a better understanding of what health screenings you will need through the years.
