What men’s health services are available?
At Irvine Family Care, blood panel testing, disease screenings, prescriptions, and treatments for common health problems are available. In addition to standard physicals for work or school, your doctor can track your blood pressure, cholesterol, weight and other factors important to your overall health.
Men can also get genital and rectal exams. These are especially important if you notice any abnormalities or discomfort in those areas or are over age 65. Additional testing and imaging are also available.
What health problems am I at risk for as a man?
Men have unique health needs, especially as they age. Men are generally at a greater risk for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and certain types of cancer than women. A yearly physical — including blood work — can help you and your doctor identify changes in your health before they become a major problem.
If your doctor notices your blood pressure or cholesterol is increasing, they can provide you with counseling and lifestyle advice to correct those issues. Your doctor will also offer vaccines, including a yearly flu shot.
How can nutritional counseling help men?
Men have more lean muscle mass and require a higher calorie intake than women. Your doctor will give you specialized nutritional counseling to help you address your nutritional needs and physique goals.
With nutritional counseling and guidance on living a healthy lifestyle, you can reach your health goals and avoid or slow the progression of chronic diseases.
How can I look my best?
If you’re following a healthy diet and are exercising regularly, yet you’re struggling to get rid of stubborn fat, you may benefit from the SculpSure® body contouring system. The laser targets trouble spots, such as your abdomen, thighs, hips, and back, to spot-reduce fat in those places. The procedure is quick, painless, and there is no downtime.
