Group urges men to seek preventive care

Category: Heart Health and Cholesterol

Most conditions can be treated effectively when they are diagnosed in their early stages. However, letting illness progress can lead to devastating health consequences. Experts from Kaiser Permanente are urging individuals to get themselves tested for a range of conditions.

This month the organization is focusing on men's health. Unfortunately, males have a reputation for ignoring health problems and not seeking medical care when they issues.

However, the group states that men can receive life-changing medical care when they receive the right testing at the right time. In particular, the organization is pushing men to seek cholesterol testing and screening for sexually transmitted diseases.

When these regular medical tests are combined with healthy lifestyle habits, such as getting more exercise and eating a healthy diet, individuals can make major improvements in their health. While these issues may not be at the top of most men's list of priorities, they are very important for preserving overall wellness.

Since it is generally easier to prevent chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes or HIV infection than it is to treat them, regular testing for risk factors is important.ADNFCR-2248-ID-800793021-ADNFCR
