What are ordinary men’s health issues?
Each man has his own set of prospective medical issues, but the team at Family Tree Medical Group has identified the following issues as the most common in men:

  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol

Though the conditions mentioned can also affect women, they’re most common in men. Your doctor helps you determine if any of these conditions are related to something gender-specific or your overall health.

Another common medical issue in men is low testosterone, as testosterone levels can significantly decrease as you age.

What is erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction refers to a man’s inability to achieve or sustain an erection long enough to complete sexual intercourse. Men with erectile dysfunction often have diabetes, hypertension, or cardiovascular disease.

If you’re over 65 years old, get in touch with Family Tree Medical Group to learn more about how you can prevent erectile dysfunction.

Is the prostate important?
The prostate is instrumental in the secretion of the fluid that produces semen. It also controls your reproductive system. Severe health complications arise if your prostate experiences any of the following:

  • Enlargement
  • Cancer
  • Prostatitis
