Here are some of the most common conditions that we can help you manage:
- Diabetes: There are two types of diabetes, Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 diabetes is typically diagnosed in children and young adults. It is the bodies inability to produce insulin. These individuals are usually on insulin injections for the rest of their lives. Type 2 diabetes is the most prevalent and is the bodies inability to utilize insulin. Anyone of any age can be affected by diabetes. Some individuals can manage their diabetes through diet and exercise while others will be dependent on medication. Uncontrolled diabetes can be incredibly detrimental to health. Left untreated, diabetes can affect the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, nerves, and much more.
- High Cholesterol: Cholesterol and heart disease go hand in hand. While the body needs certain levels of cholesterol for proper bodily function, having abnormally high levels of cholesterol is the number one risk factor for developing heart disease. Every individual should have their cholesterol tested every 1-5 years depending on their age. Cholesterol levels can be managed with diet, exercise, or medications. There are many different factors that can lead to high cholesterol levels, so it is important that a physician monitors cholesterol levels long term.
- Low Testosterone: Testosterone is the most important male sex hormone. It is responsible for many functions of the male body including muscle development and sexual drive. There are two different types of testosterone deficiency within the male body; primary (failure to produce the proper levels of testosterone) and secondary (failure in bodies ability to send and interpret signals from the brain). Low testosterone can affect men of any age and ethnicity. As a male ages, the body naturally produces less testosterone. Unfortunately, some men under-produce testosterone in comparison to other aged-paired males. Abnormally low levels of testosterone can lead to; decreased bone density, increased body fat, decreased muscle strength and mass, decreased sexual drive, decreased sperm production, decrease in motivation, depression, sleep disturbances, erectile dysfunction, and more. Managing low testosterone may be as easy as monthly injections at Men’s Vitality Center.
- Erectile Dysfunction: Erectile dysfunction is also known as “impotence.” This is one of the main side effects of low testosterone, but can also be linked to many different medical and emotional issues. Stress, heart disease, alcoholism, high blood pressure, certain medications, metabolic issues, and many more can all cause erectile dysfunction. A physician is necessary to determine whether ED is due to low testosterone or an underlying medical condition
- Depression: This medical condition is real, detrimental to health and well-being, and affects men of all ages. Depression is caused by a variety of different factors from an abnormality in brain chemistry to genetics. Depression can be managed by qualified medical professionals through a combination of medication and therapies.
- High Blood Pressure: High blood pressure is a very common medical condition which causes an increased pressure within the arteries. Often times this medical condition develops over the years, gives no outward indications, and can go untreated. Untreated blood pressure can lead to severe medical conditions; heart attack, stroke, aneurysm, heart failure, kidney problems, vision loss, and more.
