Men's Health Q & A

What are the top risks to men's health?

The top risks to men's health are the leading causes of death: heart disease and cancer. Men are most susceptible to the following chronic health conditions and types of cancer:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Heart disease
  • Liver disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Prostate cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Skin cancer (melanoma)

 

Men also develop hormone imbalances, as the production of many hormones, including testosterone, progressively declines over the years.

 

Other common health concerns for men include weight gain, erectile dysfunction, hair loss, joint degeneration, back pain, and prostate problems.

 

As integrative practitioners, Progressive Medical Center has extensive experience treating all men's health problems with safe, natural therapies.

How can men's health benefit from integrative care?

Integrative medicine is a science-based approach that follows two key principles. First, integrative practitioners draw from conventional and alternative medicine, choosing the medical, complementary, and nutritional therapies that best meet your unique health care needs.

And second, integrative practitioners identify and treat the root cause of your illness. Progressive Medical Center doesn't just treat symptoms. The team carefully evaluates your health, down to cellular functioning and genetic tendencies, to determine the underlying cause of your symptoms.

What diagnostic testing does men's health include?

The best way to get to the source of your symptoms is with advanced diagnostic testing. Though they run traditional blood work, Progressive Medical Center also goes deeper. The team performs tests to explore:

  • Hormone imbalances
  • Food sensitivities
  • Gastrointestinal microbiota
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Inflammatory markers
  • Immune function profile
  • Cardiovascular profile
  • Neurotransmitter profile
  • Heavy metals
  • Oxidative stress
  • Fatty acids
  • Amino acids

Your provider determines which tests you might need after talking with you about your medical history, symptoms, and lifestyle concerns.
