Did you know that women are 100% more likely to go to the doctor for preventative health than men? That is an astounding 100%! June is set aside as Men’s Health Month. So, let’s give all of our hard working men a little push out the door and point them to the doctor’s office. And if you are a male reading this, grab all of your relatives/friends and take them with you.
Of course, June is also the month we celebrate Father’s Day. Why not be a little creative this year and give a gift with a health benefit? Some examples include: a gym membership, subscription to a men’s health magazine, gift certificate to an urgent care center for a physical or even a check made payable to the doctor.
There are a few key preventative tests that all men need routinely:
|Cholesterol screening (to include LDL, HDL, triglycerides)|
|Blood glucose check (to include an A1c)|
|Prostate screening (PSA test)|
