Common Health Blunders Made By Doctor Averse
Men- it's time to take care of your bodies!
Most of you take better care of your cars than
you do your health. Why is this? According to
new medical information, the essential male blunder
is the notion many men have that a real man is
a man with no vulnerabilities. Well it's time
to recognize you can seek help when you need it,
and you should before it's too late.What can all
this neglect lead to? Here's some major health
errors men tend to make: Denying the obvious.
Blood in the stool, weird rashes or moles, sudden
thirstiness. Denying even something as serious
as a heart attack. When the signs of a heart attack
appear you should immediately call 911. Not getting
a prostate exam because it's unpleasant.
A digital rectal exam is a screening test for
prostate cancer, and is recommended to be done
along with a PSA blood test.Not being examined
for colon cancer. Most men should have a colonoscopy
starting at 50 and every five to 10 years thereafter.Not
being aware of testosterone levels. Experts recommend
getting serum testosterone blood tests in middle
age. Not checking yourself for testicular cancer.
Strikes younger men, 15 to 35. Eating an unhealthy
diet. Fat intake should be maximum 10% of your
diet. Hiding depression.
Ask for help, treatment is often very successful.
Smoking. Your doctor can give you a regimen to
quit.No- you don't have to wait for something
to fall off before you go to the doctor. Take
these symptoms seriously and get help if you think
you need it. And we wonder why men have a shorter
life expectancy than women. Brush off the embarrassment
and visit your doctor regularly.Chester is a health
