Celebrate the Terrific Men In Your Life!

  
  
  

Tips for Celebrating National Men’s Health Week

Every year, the week that leads up to Father’s Day in the US is also National Men’s Health Week. This week, we celebrate all the terrific men in our lives by looking out for theirs!

One of the keys to great men’s health is practicing diligent prevention methods. In addition to the standard mantra (eat right, exercise, don’t smoke, everything in moderation), it’s important for men to take active steps to monitor their health and avoid preventable diseases:

  • Have your blood pressure checked annually.
  • Have a rectal exam to screen for hemorrhoids, colon cancer, prostate cancer, and lower rectal problems annually.
  • Have a PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) blood test done annually to watch your prostate health.
  • Have an overall physical exam including routine blood tests and urinalysis every one to three years, depending on your age.
  • Have an EKG (Electrocardiogram) done at age 30 as a baseline, and then again every three to four years depending on age or your doctor’s recommendations.
  • Have a TB test every five years.
  • Have a Tetanus booster every ten years.

In addition to prevention, it’s always important for men (and everyone!) to take proper steps to treat and/or manage any current health conditions. At Lauren’s Hope, we take pride in contributing to men’s health by offering medical ID jewelry men enjoy wearing everywhere from the golf course to the board room to the 3rd grade play.

How will you celebrate and promote the health of the special men in your life this week?
