Men’s Health Q & A

 

What are the most common men’s health problems?

According to a survey of 500 men by Cleveland Clinic, as many as 40% of men put off seeking medical treatment until they have significant symptoms.

Because men don’t typically seek preventive health care, they are inherently at a higher risk for medical conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, colon disorders, diabetes, and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

Other health conditions that are unique to men include:

  • Prostate enlargement
  • Prostate cancer
  • Low testosterone
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Premature ejaculation

Seeking quality men’s health care can help protect you from severe health conditions, impaired sexual performance, and the inability to work.

What are health care services that support men’s health?

Dr. Saradih offers a wide variety of men’s health services that help support your health throughout your lifetime, including:

  • Physicals with prostate examinations
  • Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests
  • Cholesterol checks and other blood tests
  • Electrocardiograms (EKGs)
  • Colon screenings
  • Blood pressure checks
  • Smoking cessation
  • Weight-loss support
  • Testosterone testing
  • Hormone replacement
  • STD testing and treatment
  • ED evaluation and treatment

Dr. Saradih identifies your risk factors and early signs of disease. He establishes a health maintenance plan that helps to prevent and treat any men’s health issues you may have.

How can I lower my risks of having men’s health issues?

You can lower your risks for men’s health-related concerns by following Dr. Saradih’s recommendations and seeking treatment early when you have concerning symptoms.

You may also lower your risks by adopting healthy habits that include:

  • Having an annual physical
  • Having an annual prostate check
  • Engaging in safe sex practices
  • Avoiding excessive alcohol or drug use
  • Eating a healthy, well-balanced diet
  • Participating in regular physical activity
  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Practicing effective stress management

Dr. Saradih and his team specialize in supporting men’s health and lowering your health risks by supporting healthy weight loss after bariatric surgery.

Correcting obesity is one of the best ways you can improve your wellness and reverse your chances for the most common men’s health-related problems.
