Men’s Health

Similar to women, men also need to go through regular health checkups for early detection and preventive care of common medical conditions.

Some of the common Men’s Health checkups are monitoring high blood pressure, cholesterol, heart/vascular disease, blood test, and overall well-being.

Besides, particular emphasis is required determining prostate problems, erectile dysfunction, and mental health issues. Only qualified health professionals understand and identify specific health issues in men, which may vary across different age groups. Physicians consider the fact that men often find it difficult to discuss these issues and require guidance to manage them.

Lowering Cholesterol is Crucial

Cholesterol is a substance in the body similar to fat. The human body produces it, and it is found in food as well.

It is critical to keep cholesterol under control as high cholesterol levels pose a higher risk of heart ailment and stroke.

If your total cholesterol level or LDL is high, you can lower your risk of getting heart disease through the following measures:

  • Keeping your weight under control;
  • Quitting smoking if you are a smoker;
  • Keeping your salt intake or alcohol consumption;
  • Working out for a minimum of 30 minutes on most days.

Your doctor may advise certain medications to keep your cholesterol within the healthy range. If you are already on such medications, you may require regular cholesterol checkups to find out if they are working well and you are taking the suggested dose.

Healthy Diet: Eat Fruits, Vegetables, Wholegrains, and Healthy Fat

Consuming foods containing high fibre may help lower the cholesterol level in the blood. They include:

  • Fruits and vegetables
  • Beans
  • Oats
  • Lentils
  • Peas or Chickpeas

To ensure a healthy diet, eat a minimum of five portions of fruit and vegetables every day. Besides, consume reduced-fat dairy items, including unflavoured milk, yogurt, and cheese.

Besides, eat a wide range of healthy proteins. The ideal types of proteins are fish/seafood, nuts, and seeds. You can also eat smaller portions of eggs and lean poultry 1-3 times a week.
