Its a truth universally acknowledged that a man in good health will put off seeing his doctor. This way of thinking belongs in the past.

It is most important that the men in our lives get regular health checks. 

According to a study by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, a little over 30% of men aged 45 to 64 visited a GP regularly. However, the percentage drops to under 15% in men 65 plus!

It is essential for men to visit their doctor for an annual health exam. These exams form an overall picture of your health and well being and are vital in detecting underlying issues before they become difficult to treat.

To reduce your risks there are many preventative measures you can do between doctor visits.

Maintain a healthy diet. Good nutrition gives your body the foundation for good health.

Regular exercise. It doesn’t take much, simply increasing the frequency and distance you are walking every day will improve your fitness and mental health.

Stop smoking and limit alcohol intake to reduce your risk factors.

Frequent ejaculation, and self-examination of testes. Early detection is essential to successful treatment.

If you have any concerns about your health, Please don’t hesitate to contact your Doctor, no matter how uncomfortable the subject may be.

Conversations can change lives.
