For all the men out there, do you remember when did you visit the doctor last for a health check-up? Just to make sure that you are healthy.
Most men give the least importance to their own health due to various constraints of time and importance.
Do you know that women are found to be 100% more likely to visit the doctor than men? Women on all the terms healthier than men. And the fact is on an average, men die five years earlier than women.
When you take up so many responsibilities you should be more concerned about your own health.
Here we are going to look upon some of the important threats to Men’s and their preventions.
Health Threats To Men
It is very important to have your cholesterol levels checked. This is one major cause for the death of the men. Men’s arteries develop the condition called atherosclerosis, which is the hardening of arteries. The cholesterol plaques blocks the arteries in brain and heart. You should start checking your cholesterol levels from the age of 25.

It is one of the most common cancer found in men. Prostate is the gland behind the penis, which is prone to problems as men grow old. It is advised to all the men to have rectal examination done every year.
4) Depression and Suicide
Men are very secretive. They hardly express their emotion and feelings of depression when compared to women. When their depressions are unspoken they lack the emotional support. This way it leads to depression and suicide. Men basically think that it is not okay to say that they are depressed. Men tend to show a lot of anger when they are depressed. They can be treated by giving depression treatment with medications and therapy.
It does not show symptoms easily. The blood sugar levels shoot up gradually. Excessive glucose is like a slow poison in blood vessels and nerves all over the body. Overweight and obesity are likely to increase the diabetes. Exercise, healthy diet can help in reducing the blood sugar levels.
It is not life-threatening, but it signals an important health problem. Men with erectile dysfunction are more likely to be depressed.
One of the most cause is atherosclerosis. Erectile dysfunction is the condition where the blood vessels throughout the body are in less than the normal count. It is considered to be a warning sign for cardiovascular disease.
Treatments can make the sex life possible, but erectile dysfunction does not cure. If you have erectile dysfunction, you should visit a doctor.
7)HIV and AIDS:
HIV and AIDS are more commonly found in men between the ages of 15 and 29. The best way to prevent this life-threatening disease is to talk to your sexual partners and to practice safe sex.
Men are at high risk when it comes to alcohol-related diseases and conditions which are often fatal when compared to women. Consuming alcohol increases the risk for mouth or any kind of cancer.
