Men’s Health is an oxymoron in a lot of ways. When we talk about men’s health we are usually talking about men’s physical health. Men’s health usually refers to a condition of full physical, emotional, and sociological well-being, experienced by men, which is not the same as women’s. Differences in men’s health are usually attributed to cultural and physiological factors, but can also be attributed to many other factors as well. The causes of these differences could be different because of a person’s genes, their behavior, how they live their lives, what they eat, their social environments, etc.Learn more about us at Nouve Wellness Men’s Health, Gig Harbor
Men’s Health issues such as heart disease and diabetes are very high in men. Heart disease in particular is caused by physical inactivity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and unhealthy lifestyle choices, while diabetes is caused by both high blood pressure and unhealthy lifestyle choices. Some men have higher risks for both than women do, but these risks are only realized if they don’t take any steps to control them. Men’s Health problems are more common that women’s, but with all the information available people can easily figure out what to do and what to avoid to keep their heart healthy and their body in good shape.
Men’s Health issues can also be influenced by the amount of socialize they get, what they eat, what they do in their leisure time, the stress they’re under at work, and the type of car they drive, to name a few. Men’s Health is very much a lifestyle choice, and men have to decide whether they want to be physically active and healthy, or if they want to sit in the house playing video games all day and watching TV. It is important to know your risks factors for specific health issues, and know how to manage them, or find ways to mitigate them. If you choose to lead an active lifestyle and lead a healthy lifestyle, then you will be less likely to develop heart disease and high blood pressure.
