Men’s Health Conditions
Men, in general, are more likely to die of conditions related to risky behavior than women. They are far more likely to sustain a traumatic brain injury and die in car and motorcycle accidents. At the same time, they are also prone to diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and other conditions requiring specialized medication.
For men, optimization of health is a complex interaction of physical, emotional, social, environmental, and interpersonal factors. Each individual’s risk factors and solutions will be unique. For example, some of the most commonly prescribed medications for men include:
- Urology medications/ medicine for prostate health
- Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT)
- Medication addressing hormone imbalance
- Medicine to address chronic pain resulting from any number of medical conditions, such as arthritis, diabetes, and autoimmune disorders
