Men's Health Q & A

Which diseases commonly affect men?

Men struggle with a variety of issues and have a higher likelihood of developing certain chronic diseases (as compared to women). Some of the most common conditions that affect men include:

  • Hypertension 
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Low testosterone 
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Prostate and testicular cancer

Men also have a higher risk of vision and eye problems, including glaucoma. Fortunately, though, many of these conditions are preventable through routine screenings and early medical intervention. 

What happens during a men’s health evaluation?

Zenith Care Group provides personalized men’s health care services and focuses on helping you achieve your optimal health. When you come in for your evaluation, Theo talks with you about your medical history, learns about your family medical history, and finds out details about any changes in your health you may be experiencing. 

Theo then performs a head-to-toe evaluation, which may include:

  • Reflex check
  • Blood pressure check
  • Neurological screening
  • Vision and hearing screening
  • Body mass index (BMI) calculation

Theo orders labs that are tailored to your needs. As part of your routine blood testing, Theo may request an expanded cholesterol test or glucose test, for example, to evaluate your risk of heart disease and diabetes. 

Theo provides expert chronic disease management and concierge, services, too, so you can expect well-rounded medical care and access to a dedicated provider at Zenith Care Group.

How often do I need a men’s health exam?

As long as your labs are normal, and you don’t have any obvious health concerns, Theo typically schedules you for men’s wellness visits once every year. If you have a chronic condition or are at risk of developing a serious disease, Theo may have you check in two to three times a year to run some labs, evaluate your health, and check your medications.

Outside of these preventive screenings, you should come to visit Zenith Care Group when you become sick or injured or anytime you notice changes in your health (especially if you have a chronic condition).
