Men in Australia are known to be less healthy than women and to have a shorter life expectancy. Despite this, Australian general practitioners are less likely to see male than female patients. Six of the 10 most common risk factors that contribute to the worldwide burden of disease – tobacco smoking, alcohol use, high blood pressure, a diet low in fruits, a diet high in sodium, and high-fasting plasma glucose – are represented more strongly in men than in women.
Modifications of lifestyle and behaviour can reduce the prevalence and impact of these risk factors. Other men’s health issues may require a more complex approach. You might be concerned about prostate and testicular cancer, infertility, erectile dysfunction, or depression and anxiety.
The doctors at Turn The Corner can provide a comprehensive assessment of all things related to Men’s Health, and help men understand the preventative health steps they can take to lead a healthier life in the future.
