Men's Health Q & A

What specific health risks are more likely to affect men?

Men are at a greater risk of specific health problems associated with smoking and drinking or risky lifestyle choices. Men also often put off regular check-ups and medical care, so preventable or manageable problems escalate. With regular visits at the office of Francisco A. Reytor, MD, men can stay on top of their health and avoid unnecessary health problems.

Certain health conditions only affect men, too. These include:

  • Low testosterone and associated symptoms
  • Prostate cancer
  • Erectile dysfunction

Men also face major health risks, such as heart disease and colon cancer, that can be prevented or caught early with regular screenings.

Men commonly experience sports injuries, sleep apnea, and snoring. Dr. Reytor has expertise in all of these issues and can help men feel healthier and live a higher quality of life with optimal care.

What do regular men’s health screenings entail?

If you come in for a men’s wellness visit, Dr. Reytor performs a comprehensive exam and checks your cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels. He also reviews any symptoms you’re concerned about and offer treatment plans, if necessary.
If you have a major health issue, such as diabetes, heart disease, or cancer, Dr. Reytor reviews your current treatment plan to make sure it’s working for your health goals.
He also provides recommendations for a healthy lifestyle to prevent any major problems from cropping up. He provides exercise, diet, and lifestyle guidance, such as offering tools to help you quit smoking and reduce other risky health behaviors.

What is low testosterone?

Testosterone is a male sex hormone produced mainly in the testicles. Your levels peak in puberty and young adulthood and slowly decline as you age. Testosterone is critical to your sex drive, energy levels, muscle strength and mass, fat distribution, and facial and body hair development.
Low testosterone levels can lead to unpleasant symptoms that make a man feel less than his best. These include:

  • Fatigue and poor energy levels
  • Depression, irritability, and difficulty concentrating
  • Low libido and erectile dysfunction
  • Diminished muscle mass

If you suffer from any of these symptoms and feel they’re disturbing your quality of life, talk to Dr. Reytor about treatment options, which may include hormone replacement therapy.

Men feel and function at their best when they take care of their health. Call the office of Francisco A. Reytor, MD, or book an appointment online to come in for regular care.
