Men's Health Q & A

What is men’s health?

Men’s health is an area of medical practice centered on addressing the unique health needs men face as they move through the phases of life. Working with a skilled and personable men’s health professional can help you avoid disease, enhance physical and cognitive performance, and age as healthfully as possible. 

Research shows that men are less likely than women to address their health needs. Many don’t book medical visits unless they experience significant symptoms. There is a better way to support your health and wellness, and Dr.Taweh is happy to meet with you one-on-one to discuss how his services might align with your needs and goals. 

What kinds of health issues do men face?

While every man has a unique set of health strengths and challenges, men face some conditions at higher rates. Heart disease continues to be a significant health issue for many men. Working closely with an internist can help you reduce your risk of heart disease and prevent serious negative outcomes. 

Men also experience anxiety and depression and aren’t always eager to seek help when needed. Mental health issues can significantly impact your overall health and wellness, and there is no shame in exploring treatments that can help. 

Prostate health is also an area of focus within men’s health. Routine prostate checks can detect signs of abnormal tissue development and help you seek treatment as needed. 

Many men notice changes in their sexual health as they age. Suppose you encounter difficulty reaching or maintaining an erection or experience a decrease in your sex drive or stamina. In that case, Dr. Taweh can determine the source of the issue and put you on a path toward improvement. 

What are some treatments for hormonal imbalance in men?

As you age, your body naturally slows testosterone production. While that is a natural part of the aging process, that doesn’t mean you have to accept the symptoms as inevitable. 

Reduced testosterone levels can lead to numerous symptoms, many of which are troubling to men. Some of the changes you might notice include:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Increased body fat
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Memory problems
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Growth of breast tissue

If you notice any of these changes, simple blood testing can determine if you have low testosterone, often called low T. Supplemental hormone therapy can boost your testosterone levels and help you feel more like yourself. 

It often takes a process of trial and error to determine the correct dose of supplemental hormones, but you’ll have the support of the Prime Medi Spa team as you move through the process. Call the office or click today to set up a visit.
